Question:

A solid rod is held fixed at one end while an 8000 N force pulls on the other end. The rod is in the shape of a cylinder with a length of 3 meters and diameter 0.9 cm. The Young's modulus for the rod

A solid rod is held fixed at one end while an 8000 N force pulls on the other end. The rod is in the shape of a cylinder with a length of 3 meters and diameter 0.9 cm. The Young's modulus for the rod is 130 GN/m².
(a) Calculate the pressure exerted on the rod.
(b) Calculate how much the rod will elongate as a result of the force.
(c) If maximum distance the rod can stretch before breaking is 1 cm, calculate the maximum force that can be applied.
