Which property, brittleness or ductility, will let a metal deform without breaking? Why?

To determine

Among brittleness or ductility, which property allows a metal to deform without breaking.


Brittleness and ductility both are the mechanical properties of a material which are fundamentally opposite to each other. Brittleness allows a metal to break without any permanent deformation. Whereas, ductility allows a metal to deform under the action of force without any sign of crack.

The stress strain plot for a ductile and brittle material are as shown below:


Referring to the plot shown above, the area under the curves represents the energy absorbed by the material...
