    A strain guage would detect how much a sample lengthened or moved. So strain would be a minute amount of distance or movement. Stress is the amount of load

      So 'strain' would be a minute amount of distance or movement.

      Stress is the amount of load or pressure, compression or tension,
      placed on something.
