Homework Help: Materials - Vy(max)=integral Tau(xy) da

  1. Jan 28, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    problem 2.12-5

    2. Relevant equations

    Vy(max)=integral Tau(xy) da

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I'm having trouble setting up the integral (determining what to use for da).
    I tried integrating with 32in^2 as da giving me 320 kips... the actual answer is 213 kips.
