Thickness= 0.3175 cm

I= 0.0733 cm^4

Moment= 4.2 N-cm

Find the bending stress in the wing. Express your answer in N/m^2.

Is the answer either 9.096 N/m^2 or 18.192 N/m^2

max sigma is at outer fiber top and bottom y = .3175/2 = .159 cm = .00159 m

M = 4.2 N cm * 1 m/100 cm = .042 Nm

I = .0733 cm^4 *^10^-2 m/cm)^4 = .0733*10^-8 m^4

so

sigma = .042 Nm (.00159m)/.0733*10^-8 m^4

= 9.11*10^4 N/m^2

Also you dropped a couple of cm to meter type thingees I think
