Question

# How do I solve this problem, a 1/4 in diameter rod must be machined on a lathe to a smaller diameter for use as a

specimen in a tension test. The rod material is expected to break at a normal stress of 63750 psi. If the tensil testing machine can apply no more than 925 lbs. of force to the specimen, calculate the maximum rod diameter that should be used. (precision 0.000)?
