The bulk modulus of a material is N/m2. What is the percent change in volume of a piece of this material when it is subjected to a bulk stress increase of N/m2? Assume that the force is applied uniformly over the surface.
A nylon rope has a Young’s Modulus of Pa, a length of 35.0 m when not stretched, and a diameter of 0.800 cm. If a mountain climber of mass 65.0 kg hangs on this rope, how much does it extend?
A 20.0-m-tall hollow aluminum flagpole is equivalent in strength to a solid cylinder 4.00 cm in diameter. A strong wind bends the pole equivalently to a horizontal 900.0-N force acting on the the top of the pole. How far to the side does the top of the pole flex? Use a value of Pa for the shear modulus of aluminum.
