Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question! For any clarifications, am readily available.

Tensile force calculation To calculate the force, the given relation is used: Force=stress*area. The area to be used is the cross-sectional area of the material, not the area of the circular part, i.e A=pi*diameter*length.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

Hi. Am just happy to help you. In your question, in case you need the answer in Newtons, here is what you should do: We know that 1Ksi=6.895MPa. Therefore, multiply the given Stress, 100Ksi by 6.895Mpa. This will give you 6895MPa. Also to convert inches to meters, use the expression: 1inch=0.0254meters. Thus, the area will be pi*0.5*0.0254*2*0.0254=0.002027m^2. Thus the Force is Stress*Area=6895*0.002027

Ans, F=13.976MPa or 14.0 to 3significant figures. You are free to contact me for more details, thank you.
