Solution

## The correct option is C 0.0025 Given, increase in length (ΔL)=0.01 m when load is Let length =Lm radius =r young's modulus = Stress strain y=(FA)(ΔLL)y=10×10×Lπr2×0.01y=104Lπr2−⋯(1) when, r becomes 2r Load remains same TY=FL4πr2(ΔL)new −−−(11) (i) = (ii) 104 Lπr2=102 L4πr2(ΔL)new (ΔL)new =1400 mΔL=0.0025 m
