Problem 3-43

A tension test was performed on a steel specimen having an original diameter of 12.5 mm and a 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.
