The breaking stress in two wires of different materials $$A,B$$ are in the ratio:    $$\frac{S_A}{S_B}=\frac12,$$ while their radii are in the ratio:    $$\frac{r_A}{r_B}=\frac12.$$ The tensions under which they break are $$T_A$$ and $$T_B.$$ Then $$\frac{T_A}{T_B}=$$?
1. $$2$$
2. $$\frac14$$
3. $$\frac18$$
4. $$\frac1{2\sqrt2}$$

A uniform rod of mass $$m,$$ having cross-section $$A$$ is pushed along its length $$(L)$$ by means of a force of magnitude, $$F.$$ There is no friction anywhere. Ignore the weight of the rod. The longitudinal stress in the rod, at a distance $$L \over 3$$ from the left end, is:

 1 tensile, $$F \over 3A$$ 2 compressive, $$F \over 3A$$ 3 tensile, $$2F \over 3A$$ 4 compressive, $$2F \over 3A$$

1. zero
2. $$\frac{2W}{A}$$
3. $$\frac{W}{A}$$
4. $$\frac{W}{2A}$$

A heavy mass is attached to a thin wire and is whirled in a vertical circle. The wire is most likely to break:

 1 when the mass is at the highest point 2 when the mass is at the lowest point 3 when the wire is horizontal 4 at an angle of $$\cos^{-1}(\frac{1}{3})$$ from the upward vertical

A mild steel wire of length $$\mathrm{2L}$$ and cross-sectional area $$A$$ is stretched, well within the elastic limit, horizontally between two pillars (figure). A mass $$m$$ is suspended from the mid-point of the wire. Strain in the wire is:

1. $$\frac{x^2}{2 L^2}$$
2. $$\frac{x}{\mathrm{~L}}$$
3. $$\frac{x^2}{L}$$
4. $$\frac{x^2}{2L}$$
