The calculation for the maximum bending moment is to be verified experimentally using a strain gauge bonded to the outer surface of the beam, at the point where the maximum bending moment occurs. Derive an equation which could be used to calculate the bending moment from the measured strain value. State the meaning of all symbols used in your equation.

Could anyone give me any hints on this question? It's the last question i'm stuck on.

Am i right in saying maximum bending moment occurs the strain equals 0?

Thanks for any help
