    A steel wire of length 2.06 m with circular cross section must stretch no more than 0.290 cm when a tensile force of 350 N is applied to each end of the wire.

    1. What minimum diameter d_min is required for the wire? Express your answer in millimeters. Take Young's modulus for steel to be Y = 2à?1011 Pa.

    We have the relation ship
    Young modulus E=Lo*F/(deltaL*A)
    wherer E=young modulus (Pa)
    F = force (N)
    Lo = original length
    deltaL= change in ...
