(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); A wire of length 4.95 m with a cross-sectional area of 0.103 cm^2 stretches by 6.55 mm when a load of 0.94 kN is hung from it. What is the Young's modulus for this wire?

FA = Y (delta L/L)

0.103 (cm^2) = 1.03 × 10-5 m^2

6.55 millimeters = 0.00655 meters

= 9221.4 N x 1.03 × 10-5 m^2 = .09498

0.00655m / 4.95m = 0.00132323232

.09498 / 0.00132323232 = 71.7787788 Pa ????

what did i do wrong?
