Hooke’s Law

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 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

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

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...
