# A copper metal cube has each side of length 1 m. The bottom edge of the cube is fixed and tangential force 4.2x10^8 N is applied to a top surface. - Physics

#### Question

A copper metal cube has each side of length 1 m. The bottom edge of the cube is fixed and tangential force 4.2x108 N is applied to a top surface. Calculate the lateral displacement of the top surface if modulus of rigidity of copper is 14x1010 N/m2.

#### Solution

Given

η=14x1010 N/m

F=4.2x108 N

A=1x1=1m2

eta=(Fh)/(Ax)

x=(Fh)/(Aeta)

=(4.2xx10^8xx1m)/(1xx14xx10^10)

=(4.2xx10^8)/(14xx10^10)

=0.3x10-2m=3mm

Is there an error in this question or solution?
