The correct answer is 270 kg.

Bending Stress = f = M/Z (Moment / section Modulus).

100 kg/cm2 = (WL^2/8)/(1/6 bd^3) M = 100/6 x 10 x 18^2.

M = 54,000 Kg.cm - 540 Kg.m.

M = WL^2/8= 540.

W = 8 * M / L^2.

W = 8 * 540 / 4^2.

W = 270 Kg.

Bending Stress = f = M/Z (Moment / section Modulus).

100 kg/cm2 = (WL^2/8)/(1/6 bd^3) M = 100/6 x 10 x 18^2.

M = 54,000 Kg.cm - 540 Kg.m.

M = WL^2/8= 540.

W = 8 * M / L^2.

W = 8 * 540 / 4^2.

W = 270 Kg.

Correct option is (D) , 270 Kg.

F= My/I.

M = (WL^2) /8.

M = fI/y = wl^2/8.

I = bh^3/12.

Y = h/2.

F and l are known, then we get,

W= 270 kg.

M = (WL^2) /8.

M = fI/y = wl^2/8.

I = bh^3/12.

Y = h/2.

F and l are known, then we get,

W= 270 kg.

But the type of beam is not given here then how can we use simply supported condition?

In question there is no information about beam type.

Every time, assume SSB if there is not any information about support.

D. 270 is the answer I think.

Satish said:

W=270 is right.

Why you takes length in meters? All dimension take into cm than the answer is different.
