Glass Fibre Composite:  Thickness 0.00203 m Width 0.01301m Initial Length 0.204 m Final Length 0.2075 m Original Area = Width x Thickness ( . . ) 0 00203 x 0 01301  =  2.64103x10 -5  m 2 Tensile strength (ultimate strength) From the graph, the ultimate tensile strength is roughly about 104 MPa. Yield Strength From the graph, the ultimate tensile strength is roughly about 50 MPa. Proof yield strength For the carbon fibre, we don't take the proof yield strength due to the straight line we got when we plotted the graph in  Microsoft Excel. Upper/lower yield point For the fibre glass composite there is no upper and lower yield point, this is due to the curve line we got when we plotted  the graph in Microsoft Excel.
