Hi Charles,

Much less than that. You specified a curve of 1000 ft, presumably the
If your strip is 6" long
Center deflection = (0.25)^2 / 2000 x 12 inches = 0.000375"

Hi Charles,

Much less than that. You specified a cu= rve of 1000 ft, presumably the radius.
If your strip is 6" long
Center deflection =3D (0.25)^2 / 2000 x= 12 inches =3D 0.000375"
