## Homework Statement

Calculate the angle of the neutral axis from the x-axis when the beam is loaded with a positive couple of 6kNm acting around the X-axis

## Homework Equations

i have calculated:

Ixx: 2854758.6 mm^4

Iyy: 1429034.6 mm^4

Ixy: -1143476 mm^4

## The Attempt at a Solution

i know that to calculate the angle:

tanθ= - (IxxMy -IxyMx)/(IyyMx-IxyMy)

since i am confused with the statement "positive couple of 6kNm acting around the X-axis"

does that mean that Mx= 6KNm?

thank you
