# A 92-kg man's thighbone has a relaxed length of 0.51 m, a cross-sectional area of 6.3 10-4 m2, and a Young's modulus of 1.2 1010 N/m2.

A 92-kg man's thighbone has a relaxed length of 0.51 m, a cross-sectional area of 6.3 10-4 m2, and a Young's modulus of 1.2 1010 N/m2. By how much does the thighbone compress when the man is standing on both feet? In um?
The upper surface of a cube of gelatin, 7.0 cm on a side, is displaced 0.78 cm by a tangential force. If the shear modulus of the gelatin is 950 Pa, what is the magnitude of the tangential force? In N?

The answer to the second problem is corrected. It is showing 0.519 m with 0.78 m... View the full answer
