2.

The ratio of shearing stress to shearing strain within elastic limit, is known as

 [A]. modulus of elasticity [B]. shear modulus of elasticity [C]. bulk modulus of elasticity [D]. tangent modulus of elasticity [E]. all the above.

Explanation:

No answer description available for this question.

 Sharad said: (Feb 22, 2016) Shear modulus or modulus of rigidity μ is defined as the ratio of shear stress to the shear strain.

 Himanshu said: (May 24, 2016) Shear modulus of elasticity is a coefficient of elasticity of a substance, expressing the ratio between the force per unit area (shearing stress) that laterally deforms the substance and the shear (shearing strain) that is produced by this force.

 Michelle said: (Feb 22, 2017) So is there a difference between options A and B?

 Chhya said: (Apr 27, 2017) Ya Modules of Elasticity Means Young's Modulus. Shear Modulus Means Modulus of Rigidity.

 Ram said: (Feb 1, 2019) What are the units for shear strain?
