Correct Answer - Option 3 : 0.5

Concept:

Engineering strain (ϵ),

$ϵ=\frac{\delta L}{L_i}= \frac{(L_f-L_i)}{L_i}$

Calculation:

Given:

Li = 10 mm, Lf = 15 mm.

$ϵ=\frac{\delta L}{L_i}= \frac{(L_f-L_i)}{L_i}$

$ϵ= \frac{(15\;-\;10)}{10} = 0.5$

∴ The engineering strain developed in the plate is 0.5.
