Question

# A wire can sustain the weight of $$20kg$$ before breaking. If the wire is cut into two equal parts, each part can sustain a weight of

A
10kg
B
20kg
C
40kg
D
80kg

Solution

## The correct option is B $$20kg$$$$The$$ $$breaking$$ $$stress$$ $$in$$ $$each$$ $$part$$ $$of$$ $$the$$ $$wire$$ $$will$$ $$be$$ $$the$$ $$same$$ $$as$$ $$the$$ $$original$$ $$because$$ $$of$$ $$the$$ $$same$$ $$material.$$ $$Since$$ $$the$$ $$area$$ $$remains$$ $$the$$ $$same,$$ $$each$$ $$part$$ $$can$$ $$sustain$$ $$a$$ $$weight$$ $$of$$ $$20$$ $$kg.$$Physics
