M4 Concept Question 1 A beam length L, cross sectional dimensions b (width in y direction) and h (thickness in z direction) such that L>>b,h is loaded by a distributed load, q, applied over an area of b x b, near its tip. z q x L q b An estimate for the magnitude of s zz in the beam would be: 1. s zz = 0 2. zz = L 3. zz = q h 4. zz = q h 5. zz = q b L 6. Some other answer 7. I don't know/don't understand.
