`sigma = "P" / "A" `

Enter a value for all fields

The **Stress **calculator computes the stress on the cross section of a member experiencing uniaxial loading.

**INSTRUCTIONS**: Choose units and enter the following:

**(P)**Loading or force applied**(A)**Cross-sectional area

**Stress (σ):** The calculator returns the stress in newtons per square centimeter. However, this can be automatically converted to compatible units via the pull-down menu.

The formula for stress is:

σ = P / A

where:

- σ is the stress
- P is the force of the load
- A is the cross-section area.
