# When a Metal Wire is Stretched by a Load, the Fractional Change in Its Volume ∆V/V Is Proportional to - Physics

MCQ

When a metal wire is stretched by a load, the fractional change in its volume ∆V/V is proportional to

#### Options

• $\frac{∆ \text{l}}{\text{ l }}$

• $\left( \frac{∆ \text{ l }}{\text{ l }} \right)^2$

• $\sqrt{∆ \text{ l / l}}$

• none of these

#### Solution

$\frac{∆ \text{l}}{\text{ l }}$

$\text{ C . S . A . = A }$

$\text{ Length = l}$

$\text{ Volume of the wire V = Al }$

$\text{ Assuming no lateral strain when longitudinal strain occurs: }$

$\text{ Increase in volume: ∆ V = A ∆ l }$

$\Rightarrow \frac{∆ V}{V} = \frac{A ∆ \text{ l }}{\text{ Al }} = \frac{∆ \text{ l }}{\text{ l }}$

$\text{ So,} \frac{∆ V}{V} \text{ is directly proportional to } \frac{∆ \text{l}}{\text{ l }}$ .

Is there an error in this question or solution?
