Homework Statement


DSC_0038.JPG
Why cant i use the equation to determine the normal stress and shear stress ? Is my concept wrong ? I use the method in the link to do this question. The question said the
stress on a plane making angle 30 degree anticlockwise from plane AD .

Homework Equations




The Attempt at a Solution



When it's anticlockwise , the angle is positive

$$\sigma _(max) $$ = ((25-15 )/2 ) + 20cos60 + 20sin60 = 32.3MPa


$$\sigma x_(min) $$ = ((25-15 )/2 ) - 20cos60 - 20sin60 = -22.3MPa

But the ans is 12.5 and -2.3MPa

##r = sqrt ( ((\sigma _x -s \sigma_y) /2 )^2)+ (\tau_xy)^2) = 28##

##tan2\theta_p = 2\tau_xy / (\sigma _x -s \sigma_y)
= 2(20) / 40## , ##\theta_p = 22.5## degree ,
This is different from the ##\theta_p ## = -68 degree given
