1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data For safety in climbing, a mountaineer uses a nylon rope that is 50 m long and 1.0 cm in diameter. When supported, a 90 kg climber, sthe rope elongates 1.6m. Find it's Young's modules? 2. Relevant equations F/A= Y * delta L/ Lo -> Y= F*Lo/ A*delta L 3. The attempt at a solution I have Lo= 50m, delta L = (50+1.6)= 51.6m m=90kg, g=9.8m/s^2 So, F= 882N, B But I don't have Area, A? Even when I do this -> diameter,d =1 cm= .01m , r= .005m So, Area,A= pi r^2 = .0157. When I plus in the numbers into the equations, Y= F*Lo/ A*delta L the answer comes out to be 1.87*e^7 pa WHILE the real answer is 3.5*e^8 pa. What am I doing wrong?
