2. Suppose a piano tuner stretches a steel piano wire 6.5 mm.
The wire was originally 0.825 mm in diameter, 1.43 m long, and has a Young's modulus of 2.10x1011 N/m2.
Calculate the force a piano tuner applies to stretch the steel piano wire in Newtons.
F=__________

3. Suppose a 66-kg mountain climber has a 0.86 cm diameter nylon rope.
By how much does the mountain climber stretch her rope, in centimeters, when she hangs 43 m below a rock outcropping?
Assume the Young's modulus of the rope is 5 × 10^9 N/m2.
ΔL=__________
