Question:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A beam is givn with an axial strain of 500x10^-6 and a Young's modulus of 200GNm^-2. work out the magnitude of the tenslie load.

Rlelvnt equasions:

σ = YM x Axial strain

My workng:

So far I have worked out the stress of the beam to be:

36000000Nm^2

36MNm^2

But from here I dont know how to get the tensile load. Is there a formula I can use?

Picture of beam attached.

Thnx
