Q17 Anvils made of single crystals of diamond, with the shape as shown in Fig. 9.14, are used to investigate behaviour of materials under very high pressures. Flat faces at the narrow end of the anvil have a diameter of 0.50 mm, and the wide ends are
subjected to a compressional force of 50,000 N. What is the pressure at the tip of the anvil?
The diameter of at the end of the anvil, d = 0.50 mm
Cross-sectional area at the end of the anvil is A
Compressional Force applied, F = 50000N
The pressure at the tip of the anvil is P
The pressure at the tip of the anvil is .
