Cantilever

Condition that occurs when the sum of all forces and the sum of all moments acting on a body are equal to zero

Equilibrium

Ratio between the deformation of a body caused by subjecting it to stress and its original length

Poisson's ratio

Stress divided by strain (when the body obeys Hooke's Law)
