Of course. The force is equal to the stress times the cross sectional area.Do I use the area of a circle as the force is acting on the circular end? pi r^2
Looks OK, except for the units. GPa is a unit of stress, not force. It would be better to just give the answer in N.I should have noticed that given the fact I only did it last week! As for the units, I think GPa is the correct unit to use in my answer? I am getting mixed up by force measured in Newtons and Newton meters as a measurment. I have reworked my answer again?
