If you had a 2 inch diameter AISI 1020 steel rod that is 10 feet long. Under an applied load, the rod elongates by 0.48 inches.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A). How would you compute the axial strain in the bar?

and

B). How would you compute Poisson's ratio for the material, if the transverse deformation of the rod is 0.0024 inches?
