Homework Statement
See attached jpg for problem statement and diagram.
I know we didn't discuss this type of problem in class. The rest of this homework set has been solving stress transformations with Mohr's circles for a given state of stress. I know how to find τ_{xy} (that was supposed to be "tau"). So, once I find σ_{x} and σ_{y}, I know what to do with Mohr's circle to find the principal stress.
If someone could point me in the right direction for how to find σ_{x} and σ_{y}, that would be great.
Thank you!
Any hints would be greatly appreciated.
P.S.
This is due in about 12 hours.
***Just remembered that my professor told us to ignore the internal pressure. So, to find sigma x and sigma y, I only use the 200 lb axial force?
