Question

# According to Hooke's law of elasticity, if stress is increased, the ratio of stress to strain

A
decreases
B
increases
C
becomes zero
D
remains constant

Solution

## The correct option is D remains constantAccording to Hooke's law, within the elastic limit, stress is directly proportional to the strain: i.e., $$stress \propto strain$$or $$Stress=k \times strain$$$$\cfrac { stress }{ strain } =k\quad$$where $$k$$ is the proportionality constant and is known as modulus of elasticity.Physics
