  • adjective:
    • the limitation of distortion, by bending, stretching, etc., that a body can go through but go back to its original type whenever relieved from anxiety; also, the machine power or anxiety expected to create this distortion. Within the elastic limit the distortion is directly proportional toward anxiety making it.
    • the limit of distortion, by bending, stretching, etc., that a body can undergo yet come back to its original form whenever relieved from tension; in addition, the system power or anxiety needed to create this distortion. In the elastic limit the distortion is straight proportional on tension creating it.
    • the restriction of distortion, by bending, stretching, etc., that a body can undergo and yet go back to its initial form when relieved from tension; also, the machine force or stress needed to produce this distortion. In the flexible reduce distortion is straight proportional toward anxiety making it.
