Question

# $$A$$ and $$B$$ are two wires. The radius of $$A$$ is twice that of $$B$$. They are stretched by the same load. Then the stress on $$B$$ is

A
equal to that on A
B
four times that on A
C
two times that on A
D
half that on A

Solution

## The correct option is B four times that on $$A$$$$stress=\dfrac{Force}{Area}$$$$\therefore \displaystyle stress \propto \dfrac{1}{\pi r^2}$$Thus, $$\dfrac{S_B}{S_A}=\left[\dfrac{r_A}{r_B}\right]^2=(2)^2\Rightarrow S_B=4S_A$$Physics
