A steel ring of radius $$r$$ and cross-section area $$A$$ is fitted onto a wooden disc of radius $$R(R>r).$$ If Young's modulus is $${E},$$ then the force with which the steel ring is expanded is:
 1 $${AE} \frac{R}{r}$$ 2 $$A E \left(\frac{R-r}{r}\right)$$ 3 $$\frac{E}{A}\left(\frac{R-r}{A}\right)$$ 4 $$\frac{Er}{AR}$$

A light rod of length $$2~\text{m}$$ is suspended from the ceiling horizontally by means of two vertical wires of equal length. A weight $$W$$ is hung from the light rod as shown in the figure. The rod is hung by means of a steel wire of cross-sectional area $$A_1 = 0.1~\text{cm}^2$$ and brass wire of cross-sectional area$$A_2 = 0.2~\text{cm}^2$$. To have equal stress in both wires, $$\frac{T_1}{T_2}?$$${\mathrm{}}_{}$

The stress-strain curves are drawn for two different materials $$X$$ and $$Y.$$ It is observed that the ultimate strength point and the fracture point are close to each other for material $$X$$ but are far apart for material $$Y.$$ We can say that the materials $$X$$ and $$Y$$ are likely to be (respectively):

 1 ductile and brittle 2 brittle and ductile 3 brittle and plastic 4 plastic and ductile
