The change in length of a steel wire under an applied load can be halved by keeping all other conditions constant but using:
A. a different material having a Young's modulus half that of steel
B half the cross sectional area of the steel wire
C half the length of steel wire
D half the radius of the steel wire

A Piece of material 15 cm long by 2.5 cm square is in compression under a load 100 KN. If the modulus of elasticity of the material s 105 GPa and Poisson’s ratio is 0.25, find the alteration in length if all lateral strain is prevented by the application of uniform lateral external pressure of suitable intensity.
