During heavy lifting, a disk between spinal vertebrae is subjected to a 5000-N compressional force. (a) What pressure is created, assuming that the disk has a uniform circular cross section 2.00 cm in radius? (b) What deformation is produced if the disk is 0.800 cm thick and has a Young’s modulus of 1.5×109 N/m2 ?
Solution 77 PE
Step 1 of 4:
In this question, we need to find the pressure created on spinal cord disk
In part (b) we need to find the deformation produced
Radius of disk
Thickness of disk
