# Determining tensile stress watch

1. Hi, i am looking for some help on the below question.
Determine the tensile stress of a bolted plate with a force of F=210kN. Using a safety factor of 2 , determine wheter the plates will fail or not if the yield strength of the plate material is 270MPa and the thickness of the plate is 12mm. The nominal diameter of the bolts is 10mm and the clearance holes in the plate are drilled 10.5mm diameter.

Do you have a diagram or drawing so we can see how things are configured?
