What happens to the ruler when you
bending becomes too much?


The ruler will break into halves since you exaggerately bend an object not subjected to be flexible. The atom formation on the object is very dense; thus, making it strictly rigid and will commit breakage if too much force is exerted to it.
It exhibits more elasticity when bend too much.It is called elastic deformation,which the materials can only load a certain extend and when too much load is applied the force causes breakage.Plastic material can bear more force because of its elasticity.

The ability of the ruler to bend depends upon its composition. This is called elasticity. ... Almost all materials will show some elastic behavior before they break. When stretched or bent too much, some materials will continue to deform but permanently hold their bent shape instead of springing back.

1.Solid is one of the four fundamental states of matter (the others being liquid, gas and plasma). The molecules in a solid are closely packed together and contain the least amount of kinetic energy.

2.A solid is characterized by structural rigidity and resistance to a force applied to the surface. Unlike a liquid, a solid object does not flow to take on the shape of its container, nor does it expand to fill the entire available volume like a gas.

3.For the most part, they end up on one side of the sheet of paper or the other. There are probably also some small pieces of paper left behind on the scissors that fall or get blown away. Some pieces, fibers, and/or molecules will probably even remain on the scissors.

4.when bent, it only changes its form,not its chemical composition, therefore plastic ruler when bent, undergoes physical change.


It causes elastic deformation.But bending it too much can cause breakage.Only plastic materials can cause more load of elasticity
