Given that at fracture, the minimum diameter was 9.6mm. calculate the reduction in cross-sectional area. Expressing the answer as a percentage of the original cross-sectional area.

• mechanics of materials -

You don't need all that load and elongation data to answer the question. At fracture, the diameter was reduced by a factor 9.6/15 = 0.64. The area was reduced by the square of that factor, 0.4096

The area at that time was 40.96% of the initial area.
