Physics - Strength

Strength

One factor to consider when choosing a material is its strength. [1] If
the compressive stress [2] on an object exceeds a certain level, the object
will be crushed. Similarly, if the tensile stress [3] becomes too great,
the object will snap. The compressive and tensile strengths of a material
are often different.

The ultimate strength of a material is the _minimum stress_ required to
fracture the material.

In certain situations, it is wise to have a large safety factor.

Rock climbing equipment has very high safety factors. It is very rare
for climbing ropes to break - but it does happen
