What phase of matter maintains its shape when force is applied to it?

A solid will maintain its shape when force is applied to it.

What s the deformation of a solid due to an applied force?

when the reactive force is less as compared to the applied force on the body then a deformation occurs in the body.

What is buognant force?

The force applied by the liquid on the solid immersed in it is called bouyant force .one can experience this force by pushing a cork into a beaker of water.

Is yougurt a solid or a liquid?

It's a semi-solid or solid. It does not follow the shape of the container it is in unless force is applied to it, scooping with spoon, pouring it (air pressure) etc.

Can rubber be regarded as solid?

a rubber band changes shape under force and regains the same shape when the force is removed.if excessive force is applied it breaks therefore yes

Do non-metals elements which are solid at room temperature break when they are hit?

Some do break, depending on the strength of the force applied.

When does a shift in stress usually occur?

stress is a measure of the average force per unit area of a surface within a solid body on which internal forces act. These internal forces are a reaction to external forces applied on the body.Therefore a shift in stress happens when there is a change in the direction or amount of external force applied to the solid body.

What is the force between atoms to solid?

The force between atoms of a solid is inter-particle force.

What is the equation for pressure when the force is perpendicular to the surface area?

Pressure of solid on a solidWhen you apply a force to a solid object, the pressure is defined as the force applied divided by the area of application. The equation for pressure is: P = F/AwhereP is the pressureF is the applied forceA is the surface area where the force is appliedF/A is F divided by AFor example, if you push on an object with your hand with a force of 20 pounds, and the area of your hand is 10 square inches, then the pressure you are exerting is 20 / 10 = 2 pounds per square inch.

How would you define a solid?

Solid is one of the four common states of matter. The molecules in solids are closely bound together, they can only vibrate. This means solids have a definite shape that only changes when a force is applied.
