Question (specifically part b):

Solution:

3. The attempt at a solution

My issue is that I don't agree with [itex]\Gamma^{0}_{3}[/itex] and [itex]\Gamma^{1}_{3}[/itex], surely if they're given by [itex][n][/itex] they should be given by [itex]\mp(0,0,\rho g x_{3})[/itex]. The answers they have don't make sense, because traction fields should satisfy [itex]t(-n,x) =-t(n,x)[/itex] (i.e. every reaction has an equal and opposite reaction).

Can someone point out to me where I'm going wrong?
