A 3cm cube has its upper face displaced by 0.1cm by a tangential force.If modulus of rigidity of material is $5\times 10^4N/m^2$.Find the force

$\begin{array}{1 1}(A)\;3N\\(B)\;7.5N\\(C)\;4.5N\\(D)\;1.5N\end{array} $

1 Answer

$\Delta l=.1$cm,$l=3$cm
$\eta=5\times 10^4N/m^2$
As we know
$F=\eta(\large\frac{\Delta l}{l})$$a$
$\;\;\;=5\times 10^4\times \large\frac{.1}{3}$$\times 9\times 10^{-4}$
Hence (D) is the correct answer.
