If the length and the diameter of a wire are both doubled, what is the effect on the stretch of the wire? Please and thank you!! :)Answer by mananth(12270)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Tension =t length =l diameter=d ... t ..... length doubled = 2l diameter doubled =2d t1 t1=2kl/4d^2 t1/t = t1/t= t1/t = 2/4 = 1/2 the tension will reduce by 1/2
