example a material property called Yield Strength is the level of stress (load divided by cross sectional area) at which point the material starts to yield (permanently deform). So this property measures a material's response to a mechanical stimulus. (Usually a material property measures the response to some stimulus.) Material properties fit into six broad categories bases on the type of stimulus: 1. mechanical properties – measure the response to a load (force) (e.g. tensile strength, elastic modulus)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
