German term or phrase: Mpa (Einheit fur Zugfestigkeit)
I need to know what the English unit is for tensile strength for annealed brass strip-may be it is Mpa as in German?

English translation:MPa (megapascals)= MegaNewtons/m2
Explanation:
This is expressed as a pressure, so you may keep it in metric units, i.e. MPa (mégapascal) or some authors use N/mm²
so 1MPa = 1N/mm²

or roughly 10 (9.81) kgf/mm²

MPa (megapascal)


Explanation:
MPa (megapascal)

The correct spelling appears to be MPa (Megapascal/s; 1 Mpa = 106 Pa [Pascals])
The pascal is a unit of pressure equal to the force resulting from 1 newton acting uniformly over an area of 1 squaremeter.

MPa


Explanation:
According to the chapter in 'Manufacturing, Engineering & Technology' by Kalpakjian this is MPa or Megapascals.

Hope this helps.

Explanation:
The second line in my answershould read:
>>The correct spelling appears to be MPa (Megapascal/s; 1 MPa = 10 [to the sixth power] Pa [Pascals])<<

Apologies!

decaN/mm 2


Explanation:
The old unit used in this context in Germany was kg/mm 2 (sorry, I can't get the superscript to work in this program).

I have heard, in a German engineering office, the term decaN[ewton] being frequently used. The reason is simple:
decaN (10 N) is about one kg so poeple can say the new words but keep thinking in old terms .
