Homework Help: Mohr's circle

  1. Dec 18, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I found this on the Internet . At there , the author defined positive as counterclockwise rotation .
    and also “
    Positive shear would cause a clockwise rotation of the infinitesimal element about the element center.

    In the notes , the author defined positive shear axis as upwards , if I draw positive shear axis as downwards , will it make the difference ? Is it necessary to define clockwise rotation as positive now ?

    How about

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    IMO , it 's necessary to define clockwise rotation as positive . Correct me if I'm wrong .
