# Bending Stress (σ) on Beam Formula & Calculator

## Bending Stress (σ) on Beam Calculation

M - Moment of axis (Nm)
y - Perpendicular distance to natural axis (m)
Ix - Second moment area of natural axis (m4)

Bending stress (σ) on beams calculator - formula & step by step calculation to find the bending stress on beams supported by the two neutral axis. &sigma = (M x y)/Ix. Moment of natural axis M in Nm, perpendicular distance to neutral axis in m & second moment area of neutral axis Ix are the key terms of this calculation.
