Hey, i am an undergrad student studyn eng. i was given a materials assignment in which we have to pick an object made out of two or more dominant materials. i chose to do a frying pan that has a pan made out of aluminium and the handle made from bakelite (phenol formaldehyde). one of the things we have to find is the maximum load the pan can take before failing. i have information such as young's mudulus, tensile/compressive strength at failure, density. i figured that the pan acts as a cantilever, with the handle acting as the 'beam', the pan and applied loads acting as the 'point load at the tip of the beam' and our arm acting as the 'fixed end support' (meaning when we lift it). i have no idea how to find the maximum load, since i can't really find a change in length after loading nor can i find the yield strength of bakelite ANYWHERE! is there any other way i can find it? please help! Thanks!
