## Homework Statement

How do I solve the following block to find the volumetric strain. Its question 3 on the link

http://img201.imageshack.us/my.php?image=file0001pf0.jpg

I know that volumetric strain is equal to change in volume EV/ origninal volume(V)

Is Ev = Ex + Ey + Ev equal to volumetric strain.

I was told that the volumetric strain should be about 6.8 x 10^-4

Any help would be appreciated people.
