### Mohammed

Guys, does anyone know the answer?

get the stress which acts in a direction perpendicular to the area is called from screen.

## SOLVED: The stress Which acts in @ direction perpendicular to the area is called shear stress b, normal stress none of the mentioned thermal stress

VIDEO ANSWER:Hi student, thanks a lot for passing the question here. The stress acting is found for perpendicular to the direction of area. Such types of stress, it is known as normal stress, Normal stresses of two types tensile stress and compressive. Okay, stress, the answer to the question does the option be normal stress?
