A uniform edge load of 500 lb>in. and 350 lb>in. is applied to the polystyrene specimen. If the specimen is originally square and has dimensions of a = 2 in., b = 2 in., and a thickness of t = 0.25 in., determine its new dimensions a, b, and t after the load is applied. Ep = 597(103) psi and np = 0.25.

Problem 10-44A uniform edge load of 500 lb/in. and 350 lb/in. is applied to the polystyrene specimen. If thespecimen is originally square and has dimensions of a = 2 in., b = 2 in., and a thickness of t = 30.25 in., determine its new dimensions a, b, and t after the load is applied. Ep = 597x10 psi andnp = 0.25. Step-by-step solution Step 1 of 9 Consider the following diagram which represents the loading condition of a polystyrenespecimen:
