The net load applied is w1 = w/2.

So, the stress is p = w/(2a).

For suddenly applied load stress p1 = w/a.

p1/p = 2, p1 = 2p.

So, stress due to suddenly applied is twice of gradually applied load.

Can anyone please explain how it can be twice?

When the load applied suddenly then stress induce = 2 * W/A.

By comparing.

(stress) suddenly = 2 * (stress) gradually.

Here, σ impact load = (F/A)[1 + (1 + 2hAE/FL)^0.5].

Yes, it is experimentaly proved.

What is L in this formula?

At gradually (f=w only or m.g) but in sudden there will inertia in addition to it so ( f=w+m.a) then will (f=2w).

L is length of the plate.
