The increase in the length of a wire on stretching is $$0.04$$%. If Poisson's ratio for the material of wire is $$0.5,$$ then the diameter of the wire will:

 1 decrease by $$0.02$$%. 2 decrease by $$0.01$$%. 3 decrease by $$0.04$$%. 4 increase by $$0.03$$%.

A uniform wire is held at one end and stretched by applying force at the other end. If the product of the length of wire and area of cross-section of the wire remains unchanged, then Poisson's ratio of material of the wire will be:

The Young's modulus of a wire is numerically equal to the stress at a point when:

 1 the strain produced in the wire is equal to unity. 2 the length of the wire gets doubled. 3 the length increases by 100%. 4 All of these

Two wires $$X$$ and $$Y$$ of the same length are made of the same material. The figure represents the load $$F$$ versus extension $$\Delta x$$ graph for the two wires. Hence:

 1 Modulus of elasticity of $$Y$$ is greater than that of $$X$$. 2 Stiffness of $$Y$$ is more than that of $$X$$. 3 The cross-sectional area of $$Y$$ is less than that of $$X$$. 4 All of these
