The drawing shows two crates that are connected by a steel (Young's modulus 2.0 x 1011 N/m2) wire that passes over a pulley. The unstretched length of the wire is 1.8 m, and its cross-sectional area is 1.4 x 10-5 m2. The pulley is frictionless and massless. When the crates are accelerating, determine the change in length of the wire. Ignore the mass of the wire.

The mass of the boxes are 3 kg and 5 kg
