Here, I = A * R^2.

We have: F=My/I.

Also, I=√(I/A)=> I= r^2*A.

Now F =My/r^2*A => A= My/fr^2.

Also, I=√(I/A)=> I= r^2*A.

Now F =My/r^2*A => A= My/fr^2.

F/Y = M/I,

F = MY/I,

r = sqrt I/A,

I = Ar2.

By substituting the values, you will get the answer.

F = MY/I,

r = sqrt I/A,

I = Ar2.

By substituting the values, you will get the answer.

Pure bending equation:

(F/Ymax) = (M/I) = (E/R).

Put,

Ymax = 2y/2 = y.

I = Ar^2 in the above equation.

Then we get the answer A.

(F/Ymax) = (M/I) = (E/R).

Put,

Ymax = 2y/2 = y.

I = Ar^2 in the above equation.

Then we get the answer A.
