# MCQs on Mechanical Properties

1 - Question

Resistance of a material against any external force is termed as _______________
a) Stiffness
b) Malleability
c) Strength
d) Hardness
Explanation: Strength is that mechanical property of a material by virtue of which it resists change in its dimension shape and any failure by application of any external force.

2 - Question

The property of a material to resist any elastic deformation is termed as ____________
a) Stiffness
b) Hardness
c) Malleability
d) Strength
Explanation: The ability of a material or shape to resist elastic deflection is termed as stiffness of that material.

3 - Question

Resistance developed by surface of any material is known as ____________
a) Strength
b) Hardness
c) Stiffness
d) Creep
Explanation: Hardness is a surface property. Resistance developed by surface of any material is known as hardness. advertisement

4 - Question

Permanent deformation of material with respect to time due to constant load and variable temperature is termed as ____________
a) Elasticity
b) Isotropy
c) Hardness
d) Creep
Explanation: Creep is time and temperature dependent phenomenon. With the passage of time and other environmental condition, material may lead to fracture point.

5 - Question

Material having same identical values a property in all directions can be termed as ____________
a) Creep
b) Anisotropy
c) Isotropy
d) Orthotropic
Explanation: Isotropic materials have the same property in all directions. Crystalline substance is isotropic in nature.

6 - Question

Property by virtue of which material can absorb strain energy without plastic deformation is called ____________
a) Creep
b) Anisotropy
c) Resilience
d) Fatigue
Explanation: Resilience is the strain energy absorbed of a material without undergoing a plastic deformation.

7 - Question

Which of the following hardness test uses steel ball as indenter?
a) Brinell hardness test
b) Rockwell C hardness test
c) Vickers hardness test
d) Rockwell B hardness test
Explanation: Steel ball is used as indentor in Brinell hardness test.

8 - Question

In which of the following test specimen is in the form of the simply supported beam?
a) Izod test
b) Rockwell hardness test
c) Charpy test
d) Brinell test
Explanation: In the Charpy test a supported beam specimen is used.

9 - Question

In which of the following test specimen is in the form of cantilever beam?
a) Izod test
b) Rockwell hardness test
c) Charpy test
d) Brinell test
Explanation: Izod test is like Charpy test, but the Izod geometry consists of a cantilever beam with the notch located on the same side as the impact point.

10 - Question
