Statement of a problem № 41733


The Abbott of Aberbrothock paid to have a bell moored to the Inchcape Rock to warn seamen of the hazard. Assume the bell was 3.00 m in diameter, cast from brass with a bulk modulus of 14.0 X 1010 N/m2. The pirate Ralph the Rover cut loose the warning bell and threw it into the ocean. By how much did the diameter of the bell decrease as it sank to a depth of 10.0 km? Years later, Ralph drowned when his ship collided with the rock. Note: The brass is compressed uniformly, so you may model the bell as a sphere of diameter 3.00 m
