1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
I'm working on a problem that is asking me to find Young's Modulus. I have the right formula and everything that I need but I can't seem to figure out how to find the cross sectional area of a nylon rope. The rope is 21 m long and 1.4 cm in diameter. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution Would the cross sectional area be the area: pi(0.7)^2

yes (but be careful witt the units. This will be in cm^2. You might need to put it in m^2) EDIT: Doc Al beat me to it :)
