Physics problems: fluids and elasticity



Problem 4.

(Physics for scientists and engineers - Serway and Jewett - Chapter 12 - Problem 31)

A walkway suspended across a hotel lobby is supported at numerous points along its edges by a vertical cable above each point and a vertical column underneath. The steel cable is 1.27 cm in diameter and is 5.75 m long before loading. The aluminum column is a hollow cylinder with an inside diameter of 16.14 cm, an outside diameter of 16.24 cm, and unloaded length of 3.25 m. When the walkway exerts a load force of 8500 N  on one of the support points, how much does the point move down?
