1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Two identical sized specimens of materials A and B are made from materials which produce stress v strain graphs as shown below. The specimens are arranged in a press, the press moves uniformly, which of the specimens would be under the greatest stress? 2. Relevant equations stress = force / area 3. The attempt at a solution Would they both be under the same stress, they are the same size (area) and both subject to the same force?
