View the content: Elasticity: Stress and Strain

 Name: Elasticity: Stress and Strain ID: m42081 Language: English (en) Summary: State Hooke’s law. Explain Hooke’s law using graphical representation between deformation and applied force. Discuss the three types of deformations such as changes in length, sideways shear and changes in volume. Describe with examples the young’s modulus, shear modulus and bulk modulus. Determine the change in length given mass, length and radius. Subject: Science and Technology Keywords: bulk modulus, compression, deformation, force, Hooke’s law, length, shear deformation, shear modulus, strain, stress, tensile strength, tension, Young’s modulus License: Creative Commons Attribution License CC-BY 3.0 Authors: Copyright Holders: Maintainers: Latest version: 1.9 (history) First publication date: Dec 21, 2011 12:15 pm -0600 Last revision to module: Feb 19, 2014 11:37 am -0600
