## Homework Statement

Find the expressions for principal stresses in both plane strain and plane stress conditions

sigma(x) = (K/(sqrt(2*pi*r)))*cos(theta/2)*(1-sin(theta/2)*sin(3*theta/2))

sigma(y) = (K/(sqrt(2*pi*r)))*cos(theta/2)*(1+sin(theta/2)*sin(3*theta/2))

T(xy) = (K/(sqrt(2*pi*r)))*cos(theta/2)*sin(theta/2)*cos(3*theta/2))

Since the problem asks for expressions, no variables are given values.

Principal Strain

## The Attempt at a Solution

Should I take derivatives of (x), (y), and (xy) and then use that to solve for the angle theta? All I know is I'm supposed to look for sigmas x, y, and xy (not sure if my teacher meant x', y' and xy') and then sigmas 1 and 2. Ideas?
