Hi all May be someone can help me with this problem. There is a isa-chrome60 wire (d=0.5 mm, tensile strength=600 N/mm^2) which is held at both ends using end connectors ( length of the wire = 20mm). And there is a nylon wire (d=0.5 mm) which is under tension (because of torsion spring) and it is held by chrome wire at a single point. Say the force acting on the fishing line is 2 N. I would like to know if it would be possible to know that the chrome wire could withstand this much of force or not? Is there any mathematical way to do that? Thanks in advance.
