Question

# A wire whose cross-section area is $$4 {mm}^{2}$$ is stretched by $$0.1 mm$$ by a certain weight. How far will a wire of the same material and length stretch, if its cross-sectional area is $$8 {mm}^{2}$$ and the same weight is attached?

A
0.5mm
B
1.0mm
C
0.05mm
D
0.06mm

Solution

## The correct option is C $$0.05 mm$$Young's modulus is given by:$$Y = \cfrac{FL}{A\Delta L}$$It remains the same for both cases as it is a property of the material.$$\cfrac{FL}{A_1 \Delta L_1} = \cfrac{FL}{A_2 \Delta L_2}$$$$\Delta L_2 = \cfrac{4}{8} \times 0.1 = 0.05\ mm$$Physics
