A:### Quick Answer

The KSI is used to express the ultimate tensile strength (UTS) of any material. Steel with a UTS of 60,000 pounds per square inch could also be expressed as 60 KSI, with the "K" representing kilo or thousand. Sometimes, the UTS can be found expressed in Mpa or megapascals.

Know MoreTo convert Mpa to KSI, the Mpa must be multiplied by 0.1450377. The UTS is an intensive property, and therefore its value does not depend on the size of the test specimens. What does effect the UTS is the way the mild steel is treated, whether it has been hot or cold drawn or hot or cold rolled, or received annealing or quenching heat treatments.

## What is the tensile strength of mild steel?

A:The tensile strength of mild steel depends on how the steel was formed. AISI 12L14 steel, cold drawn, 3/4 inch to 1 1/2 inches in diameter, has a ultimate tensile strength of 78,300 pounds per square inch.

## How do you convert linear feet to square feet?

A:

Full Answer >**If the width of the material in inches and the linear length in feet are both known, convert the width to a fraction of a foot, then multiply width times length to find square footage.**For example, the square footage of a board 6 inches wide and 6 feet long is represented by the formula W (.5 ft) x L (6 ft) = 3 sq. ft.Filed Under: - Q:
## Why is density important?

A:

Full Answer >**Measuring density is very important for many different industries because the density measurement will help determine the characteristics of a material, for example, whether the material will float or sink.**Knowing the density of a material helps in determining the mass and volume of a material, all of which are extremely important measurements in all industries.Filed Under:
