Problem 1.3-2 Imagine that a long wire of tungsten hangs vertically from a high-altitude balloon. (a) What is the greatest length (meters) it can have without breaking if the ultimate strength (or breaking strength) is 1500 MPa? (b) If the same wire hangs from a ship at sea, what is the greatest length? (Obtain the weight densities of tungsten and sea water from Table H-1, Appendix H.)

(see figure). At failure, the distances between the gage marks are found to be 2.13, 2.48, and 2.78 in., respectively. Also, at the failure cross sections the diameters are found to be 0.484, 0.398, and 0.253 in., respectively. Determine the percent elongation and percent reduction in area of each specimen, and then, using your own judgment, classify each material as brittle or ductile.
