# Gravitational Wave Strain Magnitude

Classical Mechanics Level 3

The radius of a proton is about $$10^{-15}$$ meters. If a $$4 \text{ km}$$ arm of the Advanced LIGO apparatus is displaced by just the radius of a proton, what strain does this correspond to? (What does this say about the detectability of gravitational waves?)
