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

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

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
