and their respective strengths include; 1. Tensile strength, 2. Compressive strength, 3. Shear strength. 4. Bending strength, 5. Torsion strength, etc. Some metals and their alloys possess high strength per unit mass, making them useful materials for carrying heavy loads or resisting any damages due to impact loads. Depending upon the type of load applied the strength can .
