Question
(a) By how much does a 65.0-kg mountain climber stretch her 0.800-cm diameter nylon rope when she hangs 35.0 m below a rock outcropping? (b) Does the answer seem to be consistent with what you have observed for nylon ropes? Would it make sense if the rope were actually a bungee cord?

a) $9 \textrm{ cm}$

b) Yes, this is reasonable since a nylon rope is not meant to stretch much. A bungy cord would stretch much more.
