Step 1

In order to determine the tensile strength of the specimen, the maximum load and area of cross section of the specimen are required.

Determine the area of cross-section, A of the specimen, where the diameter of the cross-section, is given.

Step 2

Use the expression for Tensile Strength and substitute the provided and determined values.

Step 3

Convert the value of tensile strength f...
