The state of plane-stress at a point is given by σx = -200 MPa, σy = 100 MPa, σxy = 100 MPa The Maximum shear stress (in MPa) is: A) 111.8 B) 150.1 C) 180.3 D) 223.6 Explain Procedure also with Answer.

I would make sure you understand all the mathematics on that wikipage! Tags find, max, point, shear, stress ,
