The '''stress''' is given by
:<math>{\mathbf F} = \sigma_{ij} {\mathbf A}</math>
where <math>{\mathbf F}</math> is the force,
<math>{\mathbf A}</math> is the area, and <math>\sigma_{ij}</math> is the stress tensor, given by
:<math>\sigma_{ij} \equiv \left[{\begin{matrix}
  \sigma _x & \tau _{xy} & \tau _{xz} \\
  \tau _{yx} & \sigma _y & \tau _{yz} \\
  \tau _{zx} & \tau _{zy} & \sigma _z \\
where where <math>\ \sigma_{x}</math>, <math>\ \sigma_{y}</math>, and <math>\ \sigma_{z}</math> are normal stresses, and  <math>\ \tau_{xy}</math>, <math>\ \tau_{xz}</math>, <math>\ \tau_{yx}</math>, <math>\ \tau_{yz}</math>, <math>\ \tau_{zx}</math>, and <math>\ \tau_{zy}</math> are shear stresess.
