1)  0.101 MPa equals 15 psi;

2)  SO  15/0.101 = X/560  =>> X= 83,168.3168 .....psi

This is a little high for "normal" construction steel,
if the 560 mark is really the MPa marking.

3) There are at least 3 different Metric systems, and I'm nnot talking about mks versus cgs; I'm talking about industry standards.  I like the DIN  (German) system. There is also the French metric system.... etc.  YOU have to find out which one TURKEY uses...  Do you read French or German ??  Hey it''s not as bad as Russian... Things could be worse !!!
