When a wire is loaded with a weight more than its elastic limit, the strain on the wire increases very fast. When the stress reaches the peak value, it is called breaking stress. The force that causes the wire to break is called breaking force.

The breaking force is directly proportional to the cross-sectional area of the wire and not its length. Similarly, breaking stress is dependent only on the material of the wire and not its size.

Thus, when an elastic wire is cut into half, there is no effect on the maximum load it can support.
