  • elasticity

    the ability of solids to recover their original shape after being deformed by an external force


    True of False: All solids have the property of elasticity.


    term for the tendency to resist flexing or deforming

    elastic limit

    term for the point past which a material will not recover its original shape


    term for the amount of deformation required to bring a material to its elastic limit


    term for the maximum amount of relative deformation that may be permanently imposed upon a material


    term for a large, solid bar of newly refined metal

    mechanical working

    term for the processes used to impose desired shapes upon ingots


    term for two half-molds that enclose a desired shape when they are brought together


    process that involves squeezing or pounding metal with great force between two dies


    process that involves pressing down a metal by a series of paired, heavy rollers into a continuous sheet


    the property of a metal that allows it to be rolled or hammered into a sheet


    process in which metal is pulled through a single die into a continuous ribbon with the same cross-sectional shape as the interior surface of the die


    the property of a metal that allows it to be drawn into wire


    term for the attractive force between particles of the same kind

    tensile force

    term for the stretching or compressing force of the load

    restorative force

    term for the force that acts against the tensile force

    Hooke's Law

    law that states that the force of a wire pulling upward is proportional to its displacement downward, and that the restorative force acts in the opposite direction of the displacement


    term for the deformative tensile force per unit cross-sectional area

    stress = F/A

    formula for stress


    term for the relative amount of deformation-- or the ratio of change compared to the original length

    tensile stress and tension

    two terms for the effect due to pulling a rod along its length

    Young's modulus

    "Y" represents ____ _____.


    Compression forces are always _____.

    proportional limit

    term for the point at which a wire's restorative force is no longer a linear function of elongation and Hook's law breaks down

    elastic limit

    term for the maximum stress a material can sustain without being permanently deformed

    ultimate tensile strength

    term for the maximum stress a material can sustain without brreaking

    breaking point

    term for the maximum strain tolerated by a wire


    Objects that break suddenly under a load instead of deforming first are described as ____ objects.


    term for the distance at which there is no net attraction or repulsion


    term for the combination of two oppositely directed forces along parallel lines of action


    The stress that causes bulk deformation is called ____ stress.


    True or False: There is no elastic limit or ultimate strength for volume stress.
