  • two times that of A.

  • three times that of A.

  • same as that of A.

Solution

four times that of A.

(rA=2rB) ............(1)

`therefore stress=F/A`

`stress prop1/r^2`

`therefore (stress_A)/(stress_b)=r_B^2/r_A^2`

`"Stress of B"=r_A^2/r_B^2 xx " stress of "A`

`"Stress of B"=(2r_B)^2/r_B^2 xx " stress of "A`  .............. from equation 1

`"Stress of B"=(4r_B^2)/r_B^2 xx " stress of "A`

`"Stress on B"=4* "Stress on A"`
