### Hooke’s Law

Hooke’s law states that the extension is proportional to the force or tension in a wire if the proportional limit is not exceeded. The constant of...

### Stress-Strain relationship curve

Stress strain curve is used to understand the tensile strength of a given material. The given figure shows a stress-strain curve of a given...

### Stress and Strain

The internal restoring force acting per unit area of a deformed body is called stress. If F is the force applied and A is...

### Elastic Behavior of solids

A force which produces a change in the configuration of the object on applying it is called a deforming force. Elasticity is that...
