For normal stress its P/A cos^2θ.
For shear or tangential stress its P/2A *sin2θ.
For resultant stress its P/A cosθ.

Given option is correct.

Normal stress is P/Acos2 θ.

Prasenjit said:   7 years ago
Yes, it's true.

And normal stress P/A*cos2.

Shear stress is nothing else it is tangential stress over inclined plane for uniaxial direct strees.
