Consider the following statements :
1. In a member subjected to uniaxial tensile force the maximum normal stress is the external load divided by the maximum cross-sectional area.
2. When the structural member is subjected to uniaxial loading, the shear stress is zero on a plane where the normal stress is maximum.
