The vertical buttress has height h 5.0 m and rectangular cross section of thickness t 1.5 m and width b 1.0 m (perpendicular to the plane of the figure). The stone used in the construction weighs y 26 kN/m3. What is the required weight W of the pedestal and statue above the vertical buttress (that is, above section A) to avoid any tensile stresses in the vertical buttress?
