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 τxy (that was supposed to be "tau"). So, once I find σx and σy, 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 σx and σy, that would be great.
Any hints would be greatly appreciated.
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?
