We have a plate of width 200 mm and thickness 12 mm. A tensile load of F = 210 is applied along the axis of this plate. a) Determine the tensile stress in the plate. b) Using a safety factor of 2, determine whether the plates will fail or not if the yield strength of the plate material is 270 MPa.

210 what? 210 N? 210 lbs? 210 bananas?! If it's 210 N, then the stress is 87.5 kPa, so you're fine. If it's 210 pounds, that'd be 389 kPa, and you'd still be fine.
