Strain Calculator is an online tool for calculating Strain easily. It takes the inputs and calculates the Strain, so it is handy for solving problems requiring Strain Calculations.
 

Step by Step Calculation

Back to Top
Step 1 :  

Strain Formula:
Strain: S = Lc / L
Change in length: Lc = S*L
Length: L = Lc / S
Where,
S = Strain,
Lc = Change in length,
L = Length.



Step 2 :  

State the equation you plan to use and plug in the values.



Example Problems

  1. If a force is applied to a metal wire of 4m long, it stretches 0.6m. Calculate the strain in the wire?


    Step 1 :  

    Given that:
    Length of the wire(L) = 4m
    Change in the length(Lc) = 0.6m
    Strain(S) = ?



    Step 2 :  

    Substitue the given values in the formula:
    Strain: S = Lc / L
    S = 0.6 / 4
    S = 0.15



    Answer  :  

    S = 0.15



  2. If a force is applied to a rod of 0.6m long, it stretches 0.08m. Calculate the strain in the wire?


    Step 1 :  

    Given that:
    Length of the rod(L) = 0.6m
    Change in the length(Lc) = 0.08m
    Strain(S) = ?



    Step 2 :  

    Substitue the given values in the formula:
    Strain: S = Lc / L
    S = 0.08 / 0.6
    S = 0.133



    Answer  :  

    S = 0.133
