Best answer

F = 44,500 N

Strain = ?

Length = 19.1 mm, Breath = 15.2 mm

Area = A = 19.1 × 15.2 × 10-6m2

= 2.98 × 10-4 m2

G = 42 × 109 Nm-2

We have, G = \(\frac{F}{A \times strain}\)

∴ Strain = \(\frac {F}{G \times A}\)

\(= \frac{44,500}{2.98 \times 10^{-4} \times 42 \times 10^{9}}\)

= 3.65 × 10-3.
