You just need to apply the tensile stress or stress formula


Ensure your conversion of unit is correct (mm to metre).

Do you do 0.8^2 * pi * 40 or something else?

No.

What is the formula for stress?

How do you convert mm to metre?

How compute the cross-sectional area of the wire?

First you need to know the formula to work out the tensile stress, which is;

 stress = \frac{F}{A}

Now find the area as you know the Force (half the diameter) :

r = \frac{0.80}{2} = 0.40
 A = (0.40 * 10^{-3} )^{2} * \pi

Now you have the area just find the stress and divide by 10^6 to get it into MPa
