Last updated on May 30th, 2022 at 12:32 pm

*Here, we will find out the dimensional formula of Strain.*

This Dimensional formula will be applicable for all the following types of strain, – (1) ** Longitudinal Strain ** (2)

**Shearing Strain**, (3)

**Volume Strain**. Find details about strain & stress in this post:

**stress, strain, elasticity**

**The generic formula of Strain = Change in dimension/original dimension **

**Longitudinal Strain** = change in length / initial length

**Volume strain** = change in volume / initial volume

**Hence, the Dimensional formula of Longitudinal Strain **

=

**The dimension of length / The dimension of length**

**= [L]/[L]**=

**[L**

^{0}]=

**[M**

^{0}L^{0}T^{0}]And, **the Dimensional formula of Volume strain **

=

**The dimension of volume / The dimension of volume**

**= [L**=

^{3}]/[L^{3}]**[L**

^{0}]=

**[M**

^{0}L^{0}T^{0}]Hence we can conclude that:

**Dimensional formula of Strain**

**=**

**[M**^{0}L^{0}T^{0}]
