Newton single handedly brought about a new era in our understanding of the physical world, through his famous equation F = ma and the law of gravity. These laws successfully predict the behavior of all phenomena from the microscopic world to the astronomical world! Ofcourse, Einstien changed things once again but that was only after about 4 centuries. Solving Irodov dramatically helped me understand the power, elegance, simplicity and beauty of Physics. Hopefully you will enjoy the journey too.

Irodov Problem 1.309

The volume density of energy due to elastic deformation is given by . So the volume of the steel rod is V, then the total energy in the steel rod is given by . If the mass of the steel rod is m then we can rewrite it as.
