Question

The nuchal ligament in a horse supports the weight of the horse’s head. This ligament is much more elastic than a typical ligament, stretching from 15% to 45% longer than its resting length as a horse’s head moves up and down while it runs. This stretch of the ligament stores energy, making locomotion more efficient. Measurements on a segment of ligament show a linear stress-versusstrain relationship until the stress approaches 0.80. Smoothed data for the stretch are shown.

The segment of ligament tested has a resting length of 40 mm. How long is the ligament at a strain of 0.60?

A. 46 mm

B. 52 mm

C. 58 mm

D. 64 mm
