  1. Sep 23, 2006 #1
    A piece of nylon rope used by a mountaineer extended by 1.5 m when carrying the load of the 80 kg mountaineer. If the total length of the rope is 50 m and its diameter is 10 mm, determine the Young’s of this material. If the Poisson’s ratio of nylon is 0.1, determine the change in the diameter of the rope due to this stress.

    1. This is a homework/textbook problem. Please post it in the appropriate subforum; it does not belong here, in solid state physics.

    2. We do not respond to such questions unless they conform to the posting guidelines for coursework problems. Specifically, we can not help you unless you show your effort first.
