the limit of proportionality
Any simple minded first year engineering student would immediately recognise this as a typical ENGINEERING STRESS STRAIN curve
yes, that's right, it's got to do with the tensile stresses applied to an object and the corresponding strain that it produces
if my emotional state were a specimen test subject, i'd be somewhere near POINT no2. why? cocs point no 2 is called the limit of proportionality, and it is very closely related to the YIELD STRESS!!
that's where an object begins to undergo plastic deformation after reaching it's limit of proportionality..
why the analogy? cos finally i've said yes, i've agreed, on certain terms to playing for the dinner, only the most necessary parts. i thought i was gonna stand my ground... oh well, yielding point came first. i decided it's the only way lest i end up at point no 3.. know what THAT IS???
the ultimate tensile stress....
that's where a material breaks.... or
in my case
i drop dead...
and i've decided i will survive these next three weeks... God's there. and boy am i glad HE is.
