I have a cantilever with one fixed end and a point force on the other end. The cantilever beam itself is a perfect rectangular prism. We used a strain gage to measure the strain values, so how would I calculate the point force? I know the value for Young's Modulus of the cantilever used. Any help would be much appreciated!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
