Hullo. Hoping someone can help me with this Q off a statics past paper. It's one of those things that I'm sure is ridiculously easy but I seem to be missing something (possibly very obvious.) It's in the attatchment by the way. my attempt: strain = extension / o.g.length = 12 / 5000 = 0.003 E = stress / strain therefore stress = E * strain = 210000 * 0.003 = 630 Which isn't a given answer so must be wrong. Can anyone please point out where I'm going wrong?
