QUESTION: 1

A block of steel is loaded by a tangential force on its top surface while the bottom surface is held rigidly. The deformation of the block is due to

Solution:

It is the definition of shear stress. The force is applied tangentially it is not a point load so you cannot compare it with a cantilever with a point load at its free end.

QUESTION: 12

Assertion (A): Circular shafts made of brittle material fail along a helicoidally surface inclined at 45° to the axis (artery point) when subjected to twisting moment.

Reason (R): The state of pure shear caused by torsion of the shaft is equivalent to one of tension at 45° to the shaft axis and equal compression in the perpendicular direction.

Solution:

Both A and R are true and R is correct explanation for A.
