( begin{array}{l}begin{aligned} text { Stress } &=frac{text {Force}}{text {area}} &=frac{m g}{A} &=frac{text {Volume} times text {density} times g}{text {Area}} end{aligned} text { Stress } & =frac{L^{3} p g}{L^{2}} text {stress} & infty Lend{array} )
Change in stress is proportional to change in length Therefore, stress
changes by a factor of ( 9 . ) (a) option is
correct
