## How do you determine the yield strength of steel?

Yield strength is measured in N/m² or pascals. The yield strength of a material is determined using a tensile test. The results of the test are plotted on a stress-strain curve. The stress at the point where the stress-strain curve deviates from proportionality is the yield strength of the material.

### Is 1080 a tool steel?

1080 is a widely used high carbon grade with applications in cutting tools, automotive parts, and high tension wires. One of the most common applications of this steel is piano wires. Other than piano wires, this steel is used in spring clamps, antennas, springs, and leaf springs.
