Problem 2.3-14 A bar ABC revolves in a horizontal plane about a vertical axis at the midpoint C (see figure). The bar, which has length 2 L and cross-sectional area A , revolves at constant angular speed v . Each half of the bar ( AC and BC ) has weight W 1 and supports a weight W 2 at its end. Derive the following formula for the elongation of one-half of the bar (that is, the elongation of either AC or BC ): d 5 } 3 L g 2 E v A 2 } ( W 1 1 3 W 2 ) in which E is the modulus of elasticity of the material of the bar and g is the acceleration of gravity.

To find the force F ( x ) acting on this element, we must find the inertia force of the part of the bar from distance x to distance L , plus the inertia force of the
