## Expert Answer

Step 1

Given data:

Gauge length = 3 inches

Diameter d = 0.75 inches

Load at yield point = 38000 lbs

Corresponding gauge length x = 3.0103 inches

Maximum load P = 54000lbs

Step 2

Firstly calculate the cross-sectional area of the specimen.

Step 3

Now, Yield stress σ =  ...
