Homework Help: Mechanics

Posted by Catherine on Saturday, September 10, 2011 at 9:19pm.

A tension test was performed on a steel specimen having an original diameter of 12.5 mm and gauge length
of 50 mm. Using the data listed in the table, plot the stress–strain diagram, and determine approximately the
modulus of toughness. Use a scale of 20 mm-50 MPa and 20 mm = 0.05 mm/mm.


Load (kN)
0
11.1
31.9
37.8
40.9
43.6
53.4
62.3
64.5
62.3
58.8

Elongation (mm)
0
0.0175
0.0600
0.1020
0.1650
0.2490
1.0160
3.0480
6.3500
8.8900
11.9380

I know that I have to use the equations sigma=(P/A) and epsilon=(dL/L) to get the points for stress and strain... but how do I get the values for the equations? I tried to get the stress with the second values of the table:

sigma=(11.1e3 Pa)/(pi*(0.0175e3m)^2)
I get 11.54 and it is supposed to be 90.45 MPa. How do I do these?
