Define strain, Mechanical Engineering

Define strain:

Sol. : STRAIN(e) :When the body is subjected to some external force, there is some change in dimension of body. The ratio between change in the dimension of body and the original dimension is called as strain. Or, The strain (e) is deformation produced by stress. Strain is dimensionless.
