A 1.25m diameter wrecking ball hangs motionless from a 1.75 cm diameter cable. The wrecking ball is solid and is constructed of steel (density = 7800 kg/m3). If the cable is 16 m long, how much does the cable stretch? For the cable use E = 175 GPa.
2. Relevant equations
3. The attempt at a solution
When I plug in the values I get 29779.68 m which I know cannot be correct.
Thanks for your time
