Multiple Choice questions

Question 5:  A block of gelatin is 60 mm by 60 mm by 20 mm when unstressed. A force of .245 N is applied tangentially to the upper surface causing a 5mm displacement relative to the lower surface. The block is placed such that 60X60 comes on the lower and upper surface. Find the shearing stress, shearing strain and shear modulus


a) (68.1 N/m2,.25,272.4 N/m2)

b) (68 N/m2,.25,272 N/m2)

c) (67 N/m2,.26,270.4 N/m2)

d) (68.5 N/m2,.27,272.4 N/m2)


Question 6

a) F=

b) F=

c) F=

d) F=

Question 7:
