1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Compute the magnitude and location of the resultant of the parabolic loading shown in the figure below. The slope of the parabola is zero at the origin. See figure: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/819/prob6.jpg/ 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution This question is being asked in a new class but the material is from a class I took a year ago. I asked my professor for help but he's refusing to help because this is stuff we "should already know", but in the real world people don't remember every single formula that they ever went over in every class throughout their college career, and I no longer have the book for that class. It seems like this would be very, very simple to solve if I just knew the formula. I'm not asking for the final answer, but can someone help?
