internal pressure on a thin pipe causes a stress . this stress is known as: 







Expert Answer

Step 1

Longitudinal stress:  It is defined as the force acting along the longitudinal direction or in the axial direction of the pipe.

Step 2

Hoop stress/Tangential stress:

It is defined as the force acting perpendicular both to the radius and axis of the pipe along each point of circumference in both the directions. It is defined as the normal stress along tangential direction.

As the length of the pipe is more as compared to the end diameter so, the hoop stress has more value as compared to longitudinal stress. Hence, the correct answer is hoop stress.
