please see attached for full problem, i will just write what i have attempted here(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

stress=youngs modulus x strain; stress = force/area;

3. The attempt at a solution

i started off by using F = m x a, where a is gravity, then worked out sum of forces and bending moments.

this gave me high values for forces at each column. i then divided the forces by the Area, which increased to stresses.

and question b) i have been doing research on it but still searching

thanks in advance
