The principle stress is a maximum tension stress in a body where shear stress is zero and it acts on the principle plane. If a body is under both tension and shear then the principle stress is higher than the initial tension stress. You can calculate this and find the principle plane angle using Mohr Circle analysis or equations.

What is the difference betiun major principal stress and minor principal stress?

The major principal stress is the maximum normal stress occurring in an element, and the minor principal stress is the minimum normal stress in the element. Principal stresses act on the principal planes which are perpendicular to each other. Shear stresses are zero on the principal planes.

What are some facts about shearing stress?

in this stress the force acts parallel to the area on which the stress is measured. microscopically what takes place is that the material is made of several planes and during the shear stress the planes slip over each other like a pack of cards until finally failing.
