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 $$0.03$$%.

The Poisson's ratio of a material is $$0.4.$$ If a force is applied to a wire of this material, there is a decrease in the cross-section area by $$2$$%. In such a case the percentage increase in its length will be:

 1 $$3$$% 2 $$2.5$$% 3 $$1$$% 4 $$0.5$$%

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:

 1 0 2 0.50 3 -0.5 4 Infinity
