Q. 9 Define Stress ?

Whenever some external system of forces acts on a body, it undergoes some deformation. As the body undergoes some deformation, it set up internal resistance to the deformation. This resistance force per unit area to deformation is called Stress.

It is denoted by Sigma (σ), Unit of Stress is N/m

Q. 10 Define Strain ?

The Deformation per unit length is called Strain. It is dimension less. 

Q. 11 Define Hook’s Law ?

Hook’s Law state that Whenever material is loaded within elastic limit, stress is directly proportional to strain.

Q. 12 When a change in length take place, the strain is known as __________?

Linear Strain.

Q. 13 Difference between Stress and Strain ?

Difference Between Stress and Strain
Difference between stress and Strain

Where P : Tensile or Compressive Load act on body, L: original Length,

A: Area , E: Elasticity Constant, ΔL : Change in Length
