Thermal Stress: Find contraction and resulting stress (Example #17)
Temperature decrease of 50 degrees

Find diameter needed for Steel Bar (Example #16)
Find required diameter if elongation not to exceed 0.005″ and find required diameter if unit stress not exceed 24,000 psi.

Find the Strain on a steel bar (Example #15)
ksi of steel = 20,000,000 psi modulus of elasticitY = hooke’s law or young’s modulus (same thing)

Find the unit tensile stress in a cable (Example #12)
Unit stress (f) is equal to the load (P) divided by the cross sectional area (A).

Find the Centroid of the Area of a Given Shape (Example #9)
Divide into rectangles and calculate the area of each rectangle.
