Some conceptual question’s
Elasticity is a branch of physics which studies the properties of elastic materials. A material is said to be elastic if it deforms under stress (e.g., external forces), but then returns to its original shape when the stress is removed. The amount of deformation is called the strain.
3. Shear Strain:-When change takes place in the shape of the body, the strain is called shear strain.
i.e. Stress=E*Strain (where E is constant called modulus of Elasticity or coeffient of elasticity.)
σ =lateral strain (β)
longitudinal strain (α)
σ = d*L
σ = β
This is the expression for stretching force
W=1/2 YAl/L . l
This work done is converted into potential energy (U).
U=1/2 extension*stretching force
U=YAl² * L [f/A=Yl/L]
U=1/2 .Yl/L .l/L.AL
since volume = 1
Q.1 Explain why solids are more elastic than gases?
(Ans) The solids are more elastic than gases because for a given stress, the gases are more compressible than solids.
Q.2 Which is more elastic: water or air, why?
(Ans) Water is more elastic then air, because bulk modulus of elasticity is reciprocal of compressibility than water.
Q.3 Why does spring balance shows wrong reading after long use ?(Ans) The spring will lose its elastic character due to long use .Q.4 Why a spring is made of steel and not of copper ?(Ans) Under a given deforming force , the steel spring is stretched more than copper spring . Moreover the steel spring recovers its original state quicker than copper after the removal of deforming force.Q.5Crystalline solids are called true solids. why?(Ans)Bcoz they have a well defined, regularly repeated three dimensional arrangement of ions in crystalline solids.
Q.1The young’s modulus of the material of a wire is 6X1012N/m2 and there is no transverse strain in it. Find its modulus of rigidity?
