If you increase the force past the elastic limit the material will become permanently stretched. Materials obey Hookes law up to the limit of proportionality/Hookes law limit. It is the point beyond which the force is not proportional to the extension. If a deformation is elastic the material returns to its original shape after all force is removed. Metal deformation is elastic when it obeys Hookes law. If a deformation is plastic the material is permanently deformed after all force is removed.

Not just plastic materials! The atoms do not return to their original equilibrium position. Tensile Stress Breaking Stress: A stress that is big enough to break the materials apart (tears the atoms apart from each other). Ultimate Tensile Stress: The maximum stress a material can withstand

Tensile Strain Elastic Strain Energy Work has to be done to stretch a material. Before the elastic limit all this work done is stored as potential energy. This stored energy is called elastic strain energy. Calculating energy stored Deriving the formula The energy stored is equal to the work done. W = F x d = ( F) x d = ( F) x L The force is not constant so you need to take the average from 0 to F. So the elastic strain energy is: E = F L

Because the material obeys Hookes Law (F = kL), F can be replaced in the equation. E = F L = k L L = k L2 In the exam you may be 2 E = k L asked to derive this formula from the graph. Conservation of Energy When the stretching force is removed after an elastic deformation the stored energy is transferred to other forms (elastic band fires across a room). If the deformation is plastic work is done to separate atoms therefore energy is not stored as strain energy, it is dissipated as heat. Gravitational

potential energy In reality there is always some energy transferred as heat but you can usually ignore this in conservation calculations. Kinetic energy Elastic strain energy Conservation of Energy When the stretching force is removed after an elastic deformation the stored energy is transferred to other forms

(elastic band fires across a room). If the deformation is plastic work is done to separate atoms therefore energy is not stored as strain energy, it is dissipated as heat. Therefore, Change in kinetic energy = Change in potential energy Both elastic strain energy and gravitational potential energy Energy Conservation in Transport Design (again) Modern cars must have crumple zones that deform plastically in a collision. The cars kinetic energy goes into changing the shape of the vehicle, so less is transferred to passengers.
