The maximum stress under self weight – V.MohanKumar

The maximum stress under self weight of a bar

(Strength of Materials – by Er. R.K. Rajput)

σ: the maximum stress developed

l: length of the bar

ρ: density of the bar

With the help of the above formula, we can calculate the stress acting in a bar ideally i.e, without the application of the load on it in any direction.
