The term "strength" in the context of materials can refer to different types of strength, such as tensile strength, compressive strength, yield strength, etc. Each type of strength has its own specific formula for calculation. Here are the formulas for some common types of strength:

- Tensile
Strength (σ_t): Tensile strength is the maximum stress that a material can
withstand when subjected to a pulling force before breaking. The formula
for tensile strength is:

Tensile Strength (σ_t) = Maximum Load (F_max) /
Cross-sectional Area (A)

where:

- Tensile
Strength (σ_t) is the tensile strength of the material in Pascals (Pa) or
Megapascals (MPa).
- Maximum
Load (F_max) is the maximum force applied to the material before it
breaks, measured in Newtons (N) or pounds (lb).
- Cross-sectional
Area (A) is the original cross-sectional area of the material
perpendicular to the applied force, measured in square meters (m²) or
square inches (in²).

- Compressive
Strength (σ_c): Compressive strength is the maximum stress that a material
can withstand when subjected to a compressive force before failing. The
formula for compressive strength is similar to tensile strength:

Compressive Strength (σ_c) = Maximum Load (F_max) /
Cross-sectional Area (A)

where the variables have the same meaning as in the tensile
strength formula.

- Yield
Strength (σ_y): Yield strength is the stress at which a material begins to
deform plastically (undergoes permanent deformation) without any
additional increase in load. The formula for yield strength is:

Yield Strength (σ_y) = Yield Load (F_y) / Original
Cross-sectional Area (A)

where:

- Yield
Strength (σ_y) is the yield strength of the material in Pascals (Pa) or
Megapascals (MPa).
- Yield
Load (F_y) is the load at which the material starts to deform plastically,
measured in Newtons (N) or pounds (lb).
- Original
Cross-sectional Area (A) is the initial cross-sectional area of the
material perpendicular to the applied force, measured in square meters
(m²) or square inches (in²).

It's important to note that the strength of materials can be
influenced by various factors, and the values obtained from these formulas may
differ depending on the specific testing methods and conditions used to determine
the material's strength.
