40 CHAPTER 1 Tension, Compression, and Shear Problem 1.7-6 A long steel wire hanging from a balloon car- ries a weight W at its lower end (see figure). The 4-mm diameter wire is 25 m long. What is the maximum weight W max that can safely be car- ried if the tensile yield stress for the wire is s Y 5 350 MPa and a margin of safety against yielding of 1.5 is desired? (Include the weight of the wire in the calculations.) L d W Solution 1.7-6 Wire hanging from a balloon d 5 4.0 mm L 5 25 m s Y 5 350 MPa Margin of safety 5 1.5 Factor of safety
