## Homework Statement

two solid cylindrical rods AB and BC are welded together at B and loaded as shown. Determine the magnitude of the force P for which the tensile stress in rod AB is twice the magnitude fo the compressive stress in rod BC.

edit: p is supposed to be pointing outward (left)

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

im not sure how to do this because i thought stress was calculated at a certain point/area. I am not sure how to calculate stress for the whole rod.

stress = load/area

how would i do this?
