A rock climber hangs freely from a nylon rope that is 14 m long and has a diameter of 8.3 mm. If the rope stretches 4.6 cm, what is the mass of the climber?
Step 1 of 3
The objective here is to calculate the mass of a climber when he climbs a nylon rope of known length and diameter. The elongation of the nylon rope due to his mass is known.
