### Physics 6B

Stress, Strain and

Elastic Deformations

Prepared by Vince Zaccone

For Campus Learning Assistance Services at UCSB

When a force is applied to an object, it will deform. If it snaps back to its original shape when the force is removed, then the deformation was ELASTIC.

We already know about springs - remember Hooke’s Law : Fspring = -k•Δx

Hooke’s Law is a special case of a more general rule involving stress and strain.

The constant will depend on the material that the object is made from, and it is called an ELASTIC MODULUS. In the case of tension (stretching) or compression we will call it Young’s Modulus*. So our basic formula will be:

STRESS is the same idea as PRESSURE. In fact it is the same formula:

STRESS is the same idea as PRESSURE. In fact it is the same formula:

STRAIN is a measure of how much the object deforms. We divide the change in the length by the original length to get strain:

STRAIN is a measure of how much the object deforms. We divide the change in the length by the original length to get strain:

Now we can put these together to get our formula for the Young’s Modulus:

Don’t forget to cut the diameter in half.

We can do this one just by staring at the formula for stress:

The force is the same in both cases because it says they use the same weight.

The area is related to the square of the radius (or diameter), so when the diameter doubles the area goes up by a factor of 4.

Thus the stress should go down by a factor of 4 (area is in the denominator)
