Hi to all.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am new on here and require some help on how to find out strain on a steel rod when all is known.

A 14mm rod carries a load of 3.08kn in tension.

i need to calculate the stress( this I know how to do) the answer is 20mpa.

The length is 2.5m,whats the strain? and find out the change in length. the E or elasticity is 200gpa.

I would appreciate your help

Cheers
