Poisson’s ratio ν =0.29, and density ρ =3.05 g/cm3.
A) (5 points) What does elastic mean? B) (5 points) What does isotropic mean? C) (10 points) What are the P- and S-wave velocities for this material? Are these slower or faster
than the velocities for quartz? Why are they slower or faster? Show your work for this. D) (10 points) Poisson’s ratio is the ratio of transverse contraction strain to longitudinal
extension strain. Describe in simple terms what this means. The theoretical limits Poisson’s ratio
are −1 ≤ ν ≤ 0.5 . What’s the value for bulk modulus if ν =0.5? What does t...
