TENSILE FAILURE STERSS

john Alexander asks

Is the energy required to break a sample of string proportional to the length of string or is the energy requirednto break the sting constant?

Ans

The energy required to break a string depends on the stress known as tensile failure stress.It is not related to the length of the string .for more knowledge ref. Mohr’s theory
