[See Attachment]

Given: Thickness, load, G

Find:γ and horizontal displacement.

2. Relevant equations

τ=γG

Angle change should be the shear strain.

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried plugging 800 into tau and the given value of G to get γ, but that isn't working. I also tried to draw a deformation, but I dont know how to deduce how much it will deform from the question. I also dont know where thickness is used in this problem.
