Okay, is there any difference at all in the values that these variables represent? And, if so, what is it? I've searched and searched for some sort of example showing the calculation of these but every design example just assumes they are already calculated so I can't verify if there is any difference or not. And, if there isn't, ASCE should really change wpx to just wx to eliminate the confusion.
