(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

2. Relevant equations

Moment of Inertia equation: I=(1/12)bh^3

Stress and Strain equations: Sigma= -(M*c)/I Tao = (V*Q)/(I*t)

3. The attempt at a solution

I know I need to use shear and moment diagrams to find the max moment so I can use the Stress diagram to find the Moment of Inertia to find the dimensions of the cross section, but I can't figure out how to get started. Any help would be great. Thank you.
