hi there, im completely stuck on this question and was wondering if anyone could help me out here;(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

''a metal wire has a diameter of 1mm. when subjected to a tensile load of 200N the diameter is 0.99925. if the youngs modulus of the titanium is 110GPa, determine the shear modulus of the metal.''

the forumula for shear modulus is 'shear stress/shear strain'

but finding shear strain applies to displacement of solids.

using poisson's ratio means i need to find the length but there isn't one specified,

i am stuck
