Correct Answer - Option 1 : Stress

CONCEPT:

• Hooke's law states that " Within the elastic limit stress is directly proportional to strain"
• The stress of an elastic material is the restoring force acting per unit area of an object
• The strain is the ratio of change in dimension to the original dimension

EXPLANATION:

• Hooke's law states that within the elastic limit stress is directly proportional to strainHence, option 1 is the answer
• The ratio of stress to strain is known as an elastic modulus.
