maybe use ?? not too sure about the first one

second one use the formula for strain which =

3rd obviously use formula for young modulus which is
use values from question and the tension you worked out in part A
then use formula for strain which is
3. Do you know the answers?
I don't know if I'm correct but if I had to answer it in an exam I would get

Tension in both = 49.05N

Extension = 1.7mm

Diameter = 8.57x10^-4 m

But like I said, these are just guesses.
4. Hmm I haven't been able to look through it yet with my teacher but I got some different answers so I'm not entirely sure

I like your answers. One should be able to obtain an exact answer for the diameter if algebraic manipulation is used - mm.
