Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. The due time is Central time. 001 (part 1 of 1) 10 points Bone has a Young’s modulus of about 1 . 8 × 10 10 Pa. Under compression, it can withstand a stress of about 1 . 55 × 10 8 Pa before breaking. Assume that a femur (thigh bone) is 0 . 46 m long, and calculate the amount of compres- sion this bone can withstand before breaking. Answer in units of mm. 002 (part 1 of 1) 10 points A wooden platform is suspended from a ceil- ing by four steel wires at its four corners. Each wire is 7 . 2 m long and of diameter of 2 . 6 mm. The Young modulus of steel is 2 × 10 11 N / m 2 . Two people stand at the center of the plat- form, and the total weight of the two people and the platform is 1800 N. How much do the wires stretch? Answer in units of mm.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
