b) Explain the diagram Stress-Strain (stress and strain) by first defining Stress and Strain. Included in your diagram: Hook’s Law, Yield point, ultimate stress, Breaking-point, Young’s modulus.

Problem 4 (20%)

Indonesia (as well as Iran) need more Teknopreneur, you as surely ENGINEER responsible for the future strategy of the country, then also the good quality of the local-products. Imagine your next 15 years in the future, together with some colleagues, you have an intention to build a small factory of PQR. As an SME (Small Medium Entreprise) you start the bussiness with venture capital and loans. Make a plan for your start-up project briefly with various explanations (1-2 page(s) only). See PQR project below:

Group 1: Factory of children’s bicycles.

Group 2: Factory of helmet for motorcyclist.

Group 3: Factory of home-rooftop made of Zinc-alu.

GOOD-LUCK.
