Solution to Problem 219 Axial Deformation

Problem 219
A round bar of length L, which tapers uniformly from a diameter D at one end to a smaller diameter d at the other, is suspended vertically from the large end. If w is the weight per unit volume, find the elongation of ω the rod caused by its own weight. Use this result to determine the elongation of a cone suspended from its base.
