Q4. Using Eq. 2 calculate the moment of inertia of beam, section width (b) and section
depth (d) are already given above. Then using Eq. 1 to calculate the theoretical
deflection at position 1 (central position) for 5N, 10N, 15N, 20N, 25N and 30N. What
would be the implication in term beam strength if section width is replaced by section
and vice versa? Also, research about moment of inertia and why it is related to beam
strength?

experimental deflection (Table 2) at central position and prove the small deflection
theory and discuss your results.

Q6. Calculate the maximum stress in Beam (Steel Beam with section width b =
19.1mm and d = section depth/height = 6.5mm - Fig. 2) for all the loads as reported
in Table 2. You also need to discuss/comment bending stress in the beam if Beam
material is replaced with Aluminium? Guidance: See Bending Stresses in Beams.
