what is plasticity in physics?

In the fields of material science and physics, the plasticity of a solid substance can be defined as the ability of that solid to undergo deformation in its shape, which is a non-reversible change in the shape of the solid object and can be considered as the response of the object to an external force applied to it. When solids are bent or beaten into a specific (desired) shape, the permanent changes to the shape of the material as a consequence of its plasticity can be considered as a property of the material itself (since the changes occur within it). In the field of engineering, the transition of a material from elastic behaviour to plastic behaviour is commonly referred to as the yield of that material.
