Question 1 of 15
It is desired to measure the Young’s modulus and the Poisson’s ratio of a given homogeneous, isotropic material. A bar of length 20cm and square cross-section (10mm× 10mm) of this material is subjected to a tensile load of 40kN. Under this load, length increases to 20.1cm while the cross section
reduces to 9.98mm× 9.98mm. Young’s modulus and Poisson’s ratio of the material are:Correct
