Bending/stress/tension help

  1. Sep 28, 2010 #1

    All info is in the link above

    I am stuck on the problem for the longest time.

    What I do know is that bending will be at point B and compression at point A.

    I just dont know how to calculate the stresses at those points

    any advice will help.

    At the mid-point of AB, can you say what is the direct force, N, and the bending moment, M?
