I am writing a report and need to reference every equation used. I am using the equation for shear stress in a rectangular beam of

tau = 3/2 * V/A

but am not sure where it came from or what textbook to reference it from! It just seems like common engineering knowledge so I don't know who to put down as the originator of the equation.

Thanks

you can use the following link

Advanced Mechanics of Materials and Applied Elasticity, 6th Edition by By Ansel C. Ugural and Saul K. Fenster.

You can find this derivation in literally every handbook of mechanics of materials.
