Heres my given problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Gauge Length = 2 in.

Area = 0.5 in^2

The specimen yields under a load of 32,000 lb

The corresponding gauge length is 2.0083 (the 0.2 yield point)

Max load = 60,000 lb @ gage length = 2.60 in

I need to determine the yield strength, modulus of elasticity, and Tensile strength

This problem has no graph, and this books has no examples

I tried to answer it by having ys= 32,000 lb/ 0.5 in^2 (6.895x10^-3 Mpa / 1 lb/in^2) = 441.28 MPa

e= (2.0083 - 2)/2 =.00415

E = 441.28/.00415 = 106 x 10^3 MPa

TS = 60,000/0.5 in^2 (6.895x10^-3 Mpa / 1 lb/in^2) = 827.4 MPa

Im no too sure about my answers because I cant find where it states explicitly how to get the yield strength or what the it is in terms of a formula
