5 True/False questions

  1. the stress above which stress is no longer proportional to strain.Proportional limit


  2. True stressRatio of applied force to the actual cross-sectional area; however, for convenience stress is often calculated as the ratio of applied force to the initial cross-sectional area.


  3. Maximum stress that is required to cause fracture is called _________.Ultimate strength


  4. Why do prostheses sometimes fail under a very small force, even though the strength of the prosthetic material is relatively high?Flaws (could be microscopic)


  5. Stress
    Maximum stress that a structure can withstand without sustaining a specific amount of plastic strain (yield strength) or stress at the point of fracture (ultimate strength).
