## SSC JE Civil MCQs Solution & Explanation [SSC JE Civil 2011]
Q. The ratio of normal stress to volumetric strain is defined as
(a) Young's modulus
(b) Bulk modulus
(c) Rigidity modulus
(d) Tangent modulus
Ans- (b)
Explanation:
Young's modulus= [Tensile stress/Tensile strain]
Bulk modulus= [Normal stress/Volumetric strain]
Rigidity modulus= [Shear stress/Shear strain]
Tangent modulus= Slope of the stress-strain curve at any specified stress or strain.

Q. A bar, L meter long and having its area of cross-section A, is subjected to gradually applied tensile load W, the strain energy stored in the bar is given by
(a) W2L/AE
(b) W2L/2AE

Q. The predominant effect of an axial force on a helical spring is
(a) compression
(b) Twisting
(c) Bending
(d) Tension
Ans- (b)
Explanation:
Helical spring is made of wire coiled into a helical form.
The Load is being applied along the axis of the helix.
In these type of springs, the major stresses are torsional shear stress due to twisting.
They are both used in tension and compression.
