Learning goal: Critiquing computer results is an important engineering skill. To help you develop this "critical thinking" skill, this problem presents you with an ANSYS solution and asks you to critique it using hand calculations. We want you to tell us if the ANSYS solution provided in this problem has been set up correctly or if we are trying to bluff you. Enjoy!

Problem Statement: Go through the preceding Tensile Bar tutorial before attempting this exercise. A steel plate of width, w=0.25m, of length L=2m, and of density 7.9x10³kg/m³ is hung vertically from the ceiling. A force, F=50N is applied as shown in the figure below. The thickness is 1mm.
