# Stress and Strain Calculations

A mild steel shaft (modulus of elasticity = 210 GN/m2) has a stepped circular cross-section. Part A has a diameter of 75 mm and a length of 425 mm. Part B has a diameter of 60 mm and has a length of 375 mm. The shaft carries an axial tensile load of 65.0 kN.

Determine:

(a) The stress in Part A

(b) The stress in Part B

(c) The strain in Part A

(d) The strain in Part B

(e) The total extension of the shaft.

(See attached file for diagram).
