Calculating normal stress in a beam

  1. Mar 17, 2015 #1

    So I've done some calculations, I'd like to see if my stuff is right. Thanks :)

    Please view attached http://i.imgur.com/AfMZyr0.jpg

    area = (pi)(9^2) = 254.46


    Normal stress = 25000/254.46

    You must train yourself to show units with your calculations. You show the normal stress as 98.25 what?
