1. A 3.0-mm2 cross sectional area metal rod is stretched by 0.4 mm when a certain stretching force is applied to it. Another rod of the same length and metal but of a cross sectional of twice as large is stretched by the same amount of force. Calculate the stretching in the second wire.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

the answer is 0.2mm? half stretch than the first rod?

2.Compute the strain energy stored in an aluminium wire of 2.0 m long, 1.0 mm diameter subjected to a 25.0-N tension. [Y-aluminium = 7.0 x 10^10 Nm-2].

i just have to use this formula right?

F^2L/2AY

3.A stretched wire has strain energy per unit volume of 4.00 x 10^3 Jm-3. Find the Youngâ€™s modulus and the stress in the wire if the wire elongates 0.5% of its original length.

i have no idea about this

1/2Y(strain)^2 ?
