A 100 ft steel tape of cross-sectional area 0.0025 in2, weight 2.0 lb, and standardized at 68°F is 99.983 feet between end marks when supported throughout under a 10-lb pull.

a. What is the true horizontal length of a recorded distance AB if AB was measured to be 140.23 ft? At the time of measurement, the average temperature was 55°F, the tape was unsupported and there was 17 lbs of tension on the tape. (Assume horizontal taping and all full tape lengths except the last.)

A silver wire has a cross sectional area A = 2.0 mm2. A total of
9.4 × 1018 electrons pass through the wire in 3.0 s. The conduction
electron density in silver is 5.8 × 1028 electrons/m3 and e = 1.60
× 10-19 C. What is the drift velocity of these electrons?

. Oil is flowing in a 150 ft long rock with a cross-sectional
area of 35 ft2, and permeability of 100 millidarcies
at a rate of 6 B/D. The pressures at outlet end is 20
psia. Calculate the pressure at the midpoint of the
rock.
Oil viscosity is 5 cp

Copper, brass and steel rods are welded to form a ?. The cross
sectional area of each rod is 2.00 ??2. The free end of
the copper rod is held at 100.0 ° ?; and the free ends of the brass
and steel rods, at 0.0 ° ?. Suppose there is no heat loss from the
sides of the rods, the lengths of which are: copper, 13.0 ??;
brass, 18.0 ??; steel, 24.0 ??. a) What is the temperature of...

A 2750 lb car has a frontal cross-sectional area A of 22.4
ft2, a drag coefficient Cd of 0.28, and a

2) A steel rod with a cross-sectional area of 0.25 sq. in. is
stretched between two fixed points. The tensile load at 70 degrees
F is 1200 lb. What will be the stress at 0 degrees F? At what
temperature will the stress be zero?
Assume ? = 6.5 x 10-6 °F-1 and E = 30 x
106 psi.

You are measuring a line with a steel tape that has a
standardized length equal to 100.000 feet and a weight of 2.25 lb.
Three full tape lengths and one partial length were used when
making the measurement, resulting in a recorded length of 389.28
ft. The tape was supported at ends only and a pull of 12 pounds was
used. What is the distance after being corrected for sag?
CORRECT ANSWER IS 389.82ft

A 128-lb weight is attached to a spring having a spring constant
of 64 lb/ft. The weight is started in motion with no initial
velocity by displacing it 6 in below the equilibrium position and
by simultaneously applying an external force F(t) = 8sin(4t). a.
Assuming no air resistance, find the equation of motion. b. What is
the long term behavior of the motion? Please use differential
equations to solve this

If the cross-sectional area of the manometer is 10
cm2 and the amount of water added is 50 ml, what will be
