Hi I'm a second year uni student and we're learning the engineering beam theory, and part of the engineering beam theory requires us to know what the second moment of area is. I've scrawled wiki and the internet but I haven't found anything very helpful.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So my question is, what exactly is the second moment of area?
