The electrostatic force per unit area between two planar, semi-infinite surfaces separated by a distance D was approximated with an expression derived by Parsegian and Gingell (1972).
A scientist has proposed that the 101-story skyscraper may build stress, or force per unit area, on underground faults.
Also, the ratio of stress expressed in either force per unit linear density or force per unit area of original specimen and the strain expressed as either a fraction of the original length or percentage elongation.
possible to maximize the force per unit area, the arrays are scaleable,
Ultimate tensile stress was calculated as force per unit area in Megapascals (MPa), and percent elongation was calculated from measured extension.
