1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A steel plate 1m per side and 1cm thick has one edge held in a fixed position. A force F is applied along the upper edge of the plate produces a displacement of 0.005cm. Find the magnitude of F 2. Relevant equations ΔL = (1/G) x (F/A) x (Lo) 3. The attempt at a solution ΔL = 0.005cm = 0.00005m (amount of slip) G = 83E09 Pa = 83 000 000 000 Pa = 83E09 N/m2 (shear modulus) F = ? (force applied) A = 1m x 1m = 1m2 (1 square meter) (area of applied force) Lo = 1cm = 0.01m (thickness of material perpendicular to shear force) 0.00005m = (1/83E09 N/m2) x (F/1m2) x (0.01m) F = 4.15E08 = 415 000 000 Nm Is this correct?
