Hi folks,

I'm wondering if you can help me with a calculation please, I'm a bit out of my comfort zone. I'm trying to use the first formula found here to calculate stress at any given point on a cantilever but I'm a bit confused as to what 'z' is.

It's stated as being the distance from neutral axis to fibre edge, is that the distance from the support to the end of the beam? If so isn't that what v is? Or is it from whatever distance I choose x to be to the end of the beam?

Thanks in advance,

Darren
