The number of Pounds per Square Inch (PSI) for the Tensile strength.

Tensile strength is determined from testing a large number of samples. Some will fail higher or lower than others, and an average strength is determined. Minimum tensile strength is usually calculated from statistics using a Weibull probability analysis. In this case the minimum tensile strength usually is reported as the Weibull A value, which is the value at which 99% will survive with 95% confidence. Weibull B, usually based on fewer samples, is the minimum value determined to survive with 90% reliability and 95 % confidence.

If you mean tensile strength, this is the highest strength a material can handle in a tension aspect. A good experiment to determine the tensile strength of a material is to buy a tin cord. You can tie the tin cord on one end to a tree or anything high enough. On the other end you can tie some weight to it, the tin will elongate until it breaks. you need to make 2 marks on the tin cord and measure the distance between the (make them near the center of the cord). With this you can add weight and when the material breaks this is a good approximation of the tensile strength of the material. Also by measuring the distance between the 2 lines you can find the elongation of the material at a given force.Have fun

It's a unit. 1 KSI = 1000 PSI. It is just used to 'neaten' the numbers: 70 KSI rather than 70,000 PSI for example.

It's the yield strength

i understand that this is not a real answer but i too am looking for an answer to this question, and it depends on whether you mean its ultimate tensile strength or its yield tensile strength. though i have found a value of 180MPa for its tensile strength, it is unclear for which meaning this result applies and is useless to me but may help you.

md means polymer orientation in machine direction & td means the same in transverse direction.

You mean tensile strength. Different steels have different tensile strengths. The way they are made (drawn, cast, forged, etc.) is critically important to the tensile strength. By the way--steel is more important for its stiffness than its tensile strength.

Tensile strength is a measure of how much stress it takes for an object to break while being pulled.

well refering to breaking strength and tensile strength, there are alot of similarities but this doesnt mean thet are the same for tensile strength the easier of the two equations its T.S= force/ area.

Its to do with tension, it doesn't take much strength to break it

If you mean force, the SI unit is the newton. If you mean the strength of a material - its ability to withstand force - there are different types of strength: look up Compressive strength, Tensile strength, Shear strength. For example, the units for tensile strength are newtons / square meter.

It is the strength in pounds per square inch of a material at which it will be pulled apart.
