Dont know if this is the right place to post this, so let me know if it isnt!!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have just started studying macaulays equation and for every question i have done i have always been given the values of E and I. I know what E is and i was just wondering what I is and how it can be calculated. Is it something to do with the area of the beam, is it a geometrical property or a material property???
