Question 1.
What do you mean by deforming force?
External force applied on a body is known as deforming force.

Question 2.
What is deformation?
If an application of deforming force, a change in the shape or size of a body takes place, then it is said to be deformed.

Question 3.
What is meant by elasticity?
It is the property of a body by virtue of which, it regains its original length, volume and shape when the deforming force is removed.

Question 4.
What is stress and its unit?
The internal force of restitution per unit area of a deformed body is called stress.
Stress = $$\frac{\text { Force }}{\text { Area }}$$
Unit: SI unit of stress is Nm-2.

Question 5.

Plasticity is the property of remaining deformed even after the removal of deforming forces.

Question 6.

The maximum value of deforming force, by which if the force is applied on a body, the body looses its elastic property, is called elastic limit.

Question 7.
What do you mean by brittleness?
Some substances are neither elastic nor plastic but they break easily into pieces, this property of a body is called brittleness and the bodies are called brittle substances.

Question 8.
What is difference between stress and pressure?
Stress is internal force while pressure is external force.

Question 9.
How many types of stress are there?
There are three types of stress :

1. Tensile stress or longitudinal stress,
2. Normal stress,
3. Tangential or shearing stress

Question 10.
What is strain? Write its unit.
The ratio of change in length, volume or shape and its original length, volume or shape is called strain.
As it is the ratio of same quantities, therefore it has no unit.

Question 11.
What is longitudinal stress?
It is the restoring force developed per unit cross-sectional area of a body when the length of the body increases in the direction of deforming force.

Question 12.
Define tangential stress.
When the deforming force is applied along the plane of the area of cross-section of the body then the stress produced is known as tangential stress.

Question 13.
State the types of strain.
There are three types of strain :

1. Longitudinal strain,
2. Shearing strain and
3. Volume strain.

Question 14.
What is longitudinal strain?
Within elastic limit, it is the ratio of change in length to original length.
i.e., Longitudinal strain = $$\frac{\text { Change in length }}{\text { Initial length }}$$

Question 15.
Define volume strain.
The change in unit volume due to deforming force is called volume strain.
Or
Within elastic limit, the ratio of change in volume to the initial volume is called volume strain, i.e.,
Volume strain = $$\frac{\text { Change in volume }}{\text { Initial volume }}$$

Question 16.
Define shearing strain.
When a deforming force is applied on a body along its surface in such a way that the volume of the body remains constant, but the shape changes, then the body is said to be sheared and the strain produced is called shearing strain. Within elastic limit, it is measured by the ratio of the relative displacement of one plane to its distance from fixed plane, i.e.,
Shearing strain, θ = $$\frac{\Delta l}{l}$$
Δ l is relative displacement between two layers and l is the distance between the layers.

Question 17.

Within elastic limit the stress is directly proportional to the strain. i.e.,
Stress ∝ Strain.

Question 18.

Rubber < Glass < Copper < Iron.

Question 23.
If an ivory ball and an iron ball are dropped from the same height on a hard floor. Which one will rebounce higher?
The ivory ball will rebounce higher because its elasticity is greater than that of iron ball.

Question 24.
Springs are made of steel and not of copper. Why?
The Young modulus of steel is more than that of copper. If the same deforming force is applied on the spring of steel and spring of copper then the steel regain its initial position faster than that of copper spring. So the spring are made of steel.

Question 25.

The force due to which the body regain its original shape and size is called restoring force.

Question 26.
State the condition for deforming force and restoring force to be equal and opposite.
When the strain produced in the body is within the elastic limit then the deform¬ing force and restoring force are equal and opposite to each other.

Question 27.
On increasing temperature, Young modulus of elasticity increases or de¬creases.
Decreases.

Question 28.
Why the work is done in stretching a wire?
When a wire is stretched, the inter reaction force is developed within the wire and hence work is done against this force.

Question 29.
What happens with work to stretch a wire?
The work done to stretch a wire is stored as elastic potential energy within wire.

Question 30.
If the length of the wire is halved, then what will be the effect in its Young modulus of elasticity?

Increase in length will remain one-fourth.

(ii) Effect on maximum weight that it can resist?
Maximum weight it can resist will become four times.

Question 33.

This is because the elastic after effect is negligible in quartz and phospher bronze.

Question 34.
In Searl’s apparatus, two similar wires of same material are taken, why?
The temperature of room changes, hence the effect of temperature will be same on both the wires. Thus, the change in temperature does not cause any error.

Question 35.
There are two reasons :

1. It ensures that the experiment is performed within elastic limit.
2. The errors produced due to elastic fatigue, torsion and backlash ‘are removed.

Question 36.
Why the readings are taken after some time in the experiments of elasticity?
To remove the error caused by elastic after effect.

Question 37.
What is elastic hysteresis?
On applying deforming force on a body the strain is produced in it on removal of deforming force some time body do not regain its original position completely. Some strain remains left in that body. It is called elastic hysteresis.

Question 38.
Write down the effect of impurities on elasticity.
In the presence of impurities the elasticity of the bodies is increased.

Question 39.

Question 1.
State the difference between elastic and plastic bodies.
Difference between Elastic and Plastic bodies :

 Elastic bodies Plastic bodies 1. The bodies which regain their original position after the withdrawn of deforming force, are called elastic bodies. 1. The bodies which get permanently deformed by the deforming force, are called plastic bodies. 2. The change is temporary. 2. The change is permanent. 3. Examples : Gold, iron etc. 3. Examples : Melting wax, wet clay, plasticine.

Question 2.
Steel is more elastic than rubber. Explain with reason.
or
Why steel is more elastic than rubber?
Let two wires of steel and rubber of equal length L and equal area of cross-section A are taken. Both are subjected by a force F, so that the elongation produced in steel is ls and in rubber lr.
∴ Modulus of elasticity of steel, Ys = $$\frac{F \cdot L}{A \cdot l_{s}}$$ …(1)
and Modulus of elasticity of rubber, Yr = $$\frac{F \cdot L}{A \cdot l_{r}}$$ …(2)
Now, dividing eqn. (1) by eqn. (2),
$$\frac{Y_{s}}{Y_{r}}=\frac{l_{r}}{l_{s}}$$
∵ lr > ls
∴ Ys > Yr
Hence, it is clear that steel is more elastic than rubber.

Question 3.
What do you mean by Young’s modulus of elasticity. Write its unit and dimensional formula. Derive the formula for Young’s modulus and hence define it.
Within elastic limit, the ratio of longitudinal stress to the longitudinal strain is called Young’s modulus.
i.e., Y = $$\frac{\text { Longitudinal stress }}{\text { Longitudinal strain }}$$

SI unit is Nm-2 and dimensional formula is [ML-1T-2].
Formula: Let a mass M is suspended by a wire of length L and hence the elongation produced is l. If the radius of the wire is r, then
Stress = $$\frac{\text { Force }}{\text { Area }}=\frac{M g}{\pi r^{2}}$$
and strain = $$\frac{l}{L}$$
But Y = $$\frac{\text { Longitudinal stress }}{\text { Longitudinal strain }}$$
∴ Y = $$\frac{M g / \pi r^{2}}{l / L}$$
Or
Y = $$=\frac{M g L}{\pi r^{2} l}$$
Within elastic limit, Young’s modulus of elasticity is numerically equal to that force, which extends the length of wire of unit cross-sectional area by the original length i.e., the final length becomes double the initial length.

Question 4.
What do you mean by bulk modulus? Establish the formula for bulk modulus.

Bulk modulus : Within elastic limit, the normal stress is directly proportional to the volume strain.
∴ K = $$\frac{\text { Normal stress }}{\text { Volume strain }}$$
Formula : Let initial volume of a gas is V and pressure P. If the pressure is increased to P + p, so that its volume becomes V- v, hence the decrease in volume is v.
Since, force acting per unit area is called pressure. Hence,
Normal stress = Increase in pressure = (P + p)- P = p
Volume strain = – $$\frac{v}{V}$$
By Hooke’s law, within elastic limit,
Bulk modulus of elasticity = $$\frac{\text { Normal stress }}{\text { Volume strain }}$$
K = $$\frac{p}{-\frac{v}{V}}=\frac{-p V}{v}$$
-ve sign shows that, with increase in pressure, volume decreases.

Question 5.
What do you mean by coefficient of rigidity? Derive formula for it.
Coefficient of rigidity : Within elastic limit the ratio of tangential stress and shearing strain is called modulus of rigidity.
i.e., η = $$\frac{\text { Tangential stress }}{\text { Shearing strain }}$$

Formula derivation : Let ABCDEFGH be a cuboid (of side l). A tangential force F is applied on the surface ADEF, If the area of surface is A and angular displacement due to force F is θ, then
Tangential stress = $$\frac{F}{A}$$
If the relative displacement between the layers is
AA’ = X, then
Shearingstrain, θ = $$\frac{A A^{\prime}}{A B}=\frac{x}{l}$$
Modulus of rigidity = $$\frac{\text { Tangential stress }}{\text { Shearing strain }}$$
∴ η = $$\frac{F / A}{x / l}=\frac{F l}{x A}$$

Question 6.
Why are girders I shaped?

Girders of iron are made of I shapped.
Let l be the length of a rod, b be the breadth and d be its thickness. If weight W be suspended at its middle point the bending (δ) is given by
δ = $$\frac{\mathrm{W} l^{3}}{b d^{3} \mathrm{Y}}$$ …(1)
For the strength of girder, should be smaller, δ will be smaller if
(a) Y is large.
(b) From eqn. (1) it is clear that δ∝$$\frac{1}{b}$$ and δ∝$$\frac{1}{d^{3}}$$ Therefore depth d should be greater than breadth b.
Therefore, girders of made of I shape.

Question 7.
Define Poisson’s ratio. What is its unit? What is its value?
When a deforming force F is applied to a wire, then its length increases, but its radius or breadth decreases. This strain which occurs along the width of the body is called lateral strain. Within elastic limit, the lateral strain is proportional to longitudinal strain.
i.e., Lateral strain ∝ Longitudinal strain
or
Lateral strain = σ × Longitudinal strain
or
Poisson’s ratio,
Where D = Initial diameter of wire, d = Change in diameter, L = Original length of wire, l = Change in length.
It has no unit. Theoretical values lies from – 1 to 0.5.

Question 8.
Derive an equation for the force acting on the clamps, when the wire gets cooled. f’

Let a wire of length L and area of cross-section A be clamped between the two ends. If it is being cooled, then its temperature decreases by Δ t°C, as a result it gets strinked and so it tries to contract the clamps. This force has to be found out. If Y is the Young’s moduliis of elasticity and a is the coefficient of linear expansion, then
α = $$\frac{\text { Change in length }(l)}{\text { Original length }(L) \times \text { Change in temp. }(\Delta t)}$$
Hence, αLΔt = l or $$\frac{l}{L}$$ = αΔt
∴ Strain = αΔt …(1)
But, Young s modulus, Y = $$\frac{\text { Stress }}{\text { Strain }}$$
∴ Stress = Y × Strain= YαΔt …(2)
Moreover, Stress = $$\frac{\text { Force }}{\text { Area }}$$
or
Force = Stress × Area = YαΔt × A
∴ F =YAαΔt
This is the required relation.

Question 9.
Figure shows the strain-stress curve for a given material. What are:
(a) Young’s modulus and
(b) Approximate yield strength for his material?

From the given graph for a stress of 150 × 106 Nm-2, the strain is 0.002.
(a) Young’s modulus of the material (Y) is given by
∴ Y = $$\frac{\text { Stress }}{\text { Strain }}=\frac{150 \times 10^{6}}{0.002}=\frac{150 \times 10^{6}}{2 \times 10^{-3}}$$
= 75 ×109 Nm-2
= 7.5 × 1010Nm-2.

(b) Yield strength of a material is defined as the maximum stress it can sustain.
∴ From graph, the approximate yield strength of the given material = 300 × 106 Nm2 = 3 × 108 Nm-2. Actually, it is slightly less than 3 × 109 Nm-2.

Question 10.
The stress-strain graphs for materials A and if are shown in figure (a) and (b):

The graphs are drawn to the same scale :
(a) Which of the materials has greater Young’s modulus?
(b) Which of the two is the stronger material?
(a) From the two graphs we note that for a given strain, stress for A is more than that of B. Hence Young’s modulus = $$\left(\frac{\text { Stress }}{\text { Strain }}\right)$$ is greater forA than that of B.

(b) Strength of a material is determined by the amount of stress (load) required to cause breaking or fracture of material corresponding the breaking point.
∴ Material A is stronger than B as it can withstand more load without breaking than the material B corresponding to point D.

Question 11.
Prove that energy stored per unit volume in a stretched string is, given by:
U = $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × Stress × Strain
= $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × Young’s modulus × (Strain )2
Derive the formula for the potential energy of a stretched string.
Consider a wire of length L and it is extended by a force F due to which its extension takes place by l.
If A is the area of cross-section of the wire and Fis the Young’s modulus of elasticity,
then
Y = $$\frac{\text { Longitudinal stress }}{\text { Longitudinal strain }}$$ = $$\frac{F / A}{l / L}$$ = $$\frac{F L}{A l} .$$
Or
YAl = Fl or F = $$\frac{Y A l}{L}$$ …(1)

When, the wire is stretched by a force F, then work is done by the deforming force
which is stored in the wire in the form of potential energy.
Small amount of work done to stretch by dl i.e.,
dW = Fdl= $$\frac{Y A l}{L}$$dl
∴ The total amount of work done will be

Where, $$\frac{l}{L}$$is the longitudinal strain
Work done per unit volume is called elastic potential energy per unit volume (U).
∴ U= $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × Y × (Strain)2, [from eqn. (3)]
But, Y = $$\frac{\text { Stress }}{\text { Strain }}$$
∴ U= $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × $$\frac{\text { Stress }}{\text { Strain }}$$ × (Strain)2
or
U= $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × Stress × Strain. Proved.

Question 1.
A steel wire of length 4.7 m and cross-sectional area 3.0 × 10-5 m2stretches by the same amount as a copper wire of length 3.5 m and cross-sectional area 4.0 × 10-5
m2 under a given load. What is the ratio of the Young’s modulus of steel to that of copper?
Solution:
Here, for steel wire,
Length of wire, l1 = 4.7 m
Area of cross-section, a1 = 3.0 × 10-5 m2
Stretching, Δl1, = Δl(say)
Stretching force on steel, F1 = F
For copper wire,
Length of wire,l2 = 3.5 m
Area of cross-section, a2 = 4.0 × 10-5 m2
Stretching, Δl2 = Δl(given);
Stretching force on copper, F2 = F
Let Y1 and Y2 be the Young’s modulus of steel and copper wire respectively.

Dividing eqn. (1) by eqn. (2), we get

= $$\frac{18 \cdot 8}{10 \cdot 5}$$ = 1.79 = 1.8:1

Question 2.
Two wires of diameter 0.25 cm. One made of steel and the other made of brass are loaded as shown in fig. The unloaded length of steel wire is 1.5 m and that of brass wire is 1.0 m. If Young’s modulus of steel and brass are 2.0 × 1011 Pa and 0.91 × 1011 Pa, then compare the elongation of the steel and the brass wires.
Solution:

Using, Y = $$\frac{M g L}{\pi r^{2} l}$$
l = $$\frac{M g L}{\pi r^{2} Y}$$
For brass wire,
M= 6 kg, L = 1.0 m, Y = 0.91 × 1011N/m2
and 2r = 0.25 cm = 0.25 × 10-2m
r = 0.125 × 10-2m
Putting the values in formula,
l = $$\frac{6 \times 9 \cdot 8 \times 1 \cdot 0}{3 \cdot 14 \times\left(0 \cdot 125 \times 10^{-2}\right)^{2} \times 0 \cdot 91 \times 10^{1}}$$
= 1.3 × 10-4 m.
For steel wire,
M = 6 + 4 = 10 kg,L = 1.5 m, Y = 2.0 × 1011 N/m2and 2r = 0.25cm
∴ r = 0.125 × 10-2m
Putting the values in formula,
l = $$\frac{10 \times 9 \cdot 8 \times 1 \cdot 5}{3 \cdot 14 \times\left(0 \cdot 125 \times 10^{-2}\right)^{2} \times 2 \cdot 0 \times 10^{1}}$$
= 1.5 × 10-4m

Solution:
Here, Y = 1.1 × 1011Nm-2
A = Area of cross-section
= 15.2 mm × 19.1 mm
= 15.2 × 10-3m × 19.1 × 10-3 m
Force, F = 44500 N
Resulting Strain = Longitudinal Strain = ?
∴ Y = $$\frac{\text { Stress }}{\text { Strain }}$$
or
Strain $$=\frac{\text { Stress }}{Y}=\frac{F}{A Y}$$
or
Longitudinal Strain = $$\frac{44500}{15 \cdot 2 \times 19 \cdot 1 \times 10^{-6} \times 1 \cdot 1 \times 10^{1}}$$
= 139.34 × 10-3 m = 0.139.

Question 4.
A steel cable with a radius of 1.5 cm supports a chair lift at a ski area. If the maximum stress is not to exceed 108 Nm-2, what is the maximum load the cable can support?
Solution:
Here, radius of steel cable r = 1.5cm = 1.5 × 10-2 m
Max. Stress = 108 Nm-2
∴ Area of cross-section of cable A = πr-2 = π(1.5 × 10-2)2
Maximum load the cable can withstand = Maximum force ? We know that,
Maximum stress = $$\frac{\text { Maximum force }}{\text { Area of cross-section }}$$
or
Maximum force = Maximum stress × Area of cross-section
= 108 × π × (1.5 × 10-2)2
= 3.142 × 2.25 × 108 × 10-4 N
or
Maximum load the cable can withstand = 7.1 × 104N.

∴ Stress = 4 × 107 N/m2.

(ii) Strain: The Young’s modulus of wire is Y = $$\frac{\text { Stress }}{\text { Strain }}$$
∴ Strain = $$\frac{\text { Stress }}{\mathrm{Y}}=\frac{4 \times 10^{7}}{1 \cdot 2 \times 10^{11}}$$
∴ Strain = 3.3 × 10-4

(iii) Increase in Length of wire : From the formula of Young’s modulus
Y = $$\frac{\mathrm{FL}}{\mathrm{A} . l}$$
∴ l = $$\frac{\mathrm{FL}}{\mathrm{AY}}$$

∴ Linear strain = $$\frac{\text { Increase in length }}{\text { Original length }}$$
= $$\frac{1}{100}$$
= 0.01
Stress = Y × Strain = (8 × 1010) × (0.01)
=8 ×108N/m2.

We have, Y = $$\frac{M g L}{\pi r^{2} l}$$
or
Y = $$\frac{2 \times 9 \cdot 8 \times 3}{3 \cdot 14 \times\left(0 \cdot 5 \times 10^{-3}\right)^{2} \times 10^{-3}}$$
=  $$\frac{58 \cdot 8 \times 10^{6} \times 10^{3}}{3 \cdot 14 \times 0 \cdot 25}$$
∴ Y = $$\frac{588 \times 10^{12}}{314 \times 25}$$
= 7.49 × 1010Nm-2

and Mg = 2 × 1012dyne = 2 × 1012 × 10-5N = 2 × 107N
Now, we have Y = $$\frac{M g L}{\pi r^{2} l}$$

∴ Y = $$\frac{2 \times 10^{7}}{10^{-4}}$$ = 2 × 1011 Nm-2

Frmula, Y = $$\frac{M g L}{\pi r^{2} l}$$
or
Mg = $$\frac{Y \pi r^{2} l}{L}$$
$$=\frac{2 \times 10^{11} \times 3 \cdot 14 \times\left(10^{-3}\right)^{2} \times 10^{-3}}{1}$$
= 6.28 × 1011 × 10-9

l = 2mm = 2 × 10-3m and Y = 2 × 10-11 Nm-2
Strain = $$\frac{l}{L}=\frac{2 \times 10^{-3}}{1}$$ = 2 × 10-3
∴ Volume of wire = A.L = 10-6 × 1 = 10-6m3
Work done = $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × Y × (Strain)2 × Volume
= $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × 2 × 1011 × (2 ×10-3)11× 10-6
= 0.4 J.

Given : Depth h = 200m, Density of water = 103 kg/m3 Acceleration due to gravity g = 10 m/sec2,
Volume strain = 0.1% = –$$\frac{0 \cdot 1}{100}$$
∴ Bulk modulus K = $$\frac{\frac{-p}{\Delta v}}{\frac{V}{V}}$$
or
K = $$\frac{-200 \times 10^{3} \times 10}{\frac{-0 \cdot 1}{100}}$$
= 2 × 109N/m2

Given : M = 20 kg, A = 1mm2 = 10-6m2, L = 6m,
Change in length = 6 – 5.995 = 0.005 m
∴ Y = $$\frac{M g L}{A l}$$
or
Y $$=\frac{20 \times 9 \cdot 8 \times 6}{10^{-6} \times 0-005}$$
= 2.35 × 1011N/m2.

Question 14.
On iron wire of radius 0.5 mm is heated up to 300°C and then it is fixed between two clamp. When the temperature reduces to 30°. What will be the force acting upon the clamp. (α = 1.2 × 10-5/°C and Y= 1.4 × 1012 dyne/cm2)
Solution:
Given : r = 0.5mm = 0.05 cm, α = 1.2 × 10×-5/°C, Y = 1.4 × 1012dyne/cm2
ΔT = 300 – 30 = 270° C
From F = YΔ α. AT, we get
F = Y πr2 α ΔT
∴ F = 1.4 × 1012 × 314 × (0.05)2 × 1.2 × 10-5 × 270
F = 3.56 × 107 dyne.
