As we learnt in

Work Done in Stretching Wire / Elastic P.E. -

=\frac{1}{2}\frac{YAl^{2}}{L}=\frac{1}{2}Fl

- wherein

L - Length of wire

l - increase in length

 

 We know that 

E=\frac{1}{2}\times F\times \Delta l

=\frac{1}{2}\times 200\times 10^{-3}J=0.1\ J

Correct option is 4.


Option 1)

0.2\: J

This is an incorrect option.

Option 2)

10\: J

This is an incorrect option.

Option 3)

20\: J

This is an incorrect option.

Option 4)

0.1\: J

This is the correct option.
