Test 1.1 Average stress Welcome to your ST 1.1 Average stress Name Business Email Phone Number You can measure stress directly with an instrument the way you measure temperature with a thermometer. True False There can be only one normal stress component acting on the surface of an imaginary cut. True False If a shear stress component on the left surface of an imaginary cut is upward, then on the right surface it will be downward. True False If a normal stress component puts the left surface of an imaginary cut in tension, then the right surface will be in compression. True False The correct way of reporting shear stress is = 70 kips. True False The correct way of reporting positive axial stress is = +15 MPa. True False 1 GPa equals 106 Pa. True False 1 psi is approximately equal to 7 Pa. True False A common failure stress value for metals is 10,000 Pa. True False Stress on a surface is the same as pressure on a surface as both quantities have the same units. True False Please fill in the comment box below.
