1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data why the shearing force acting on the object in the first diagram is in different direction , while in the second photo , it's in same direction ? 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution in my opinion , it should be in different direction , because the shearing force must be applied in 2 different direction , so that the object will be 'teared' . Which is correct?
