    - The angle Φ shown in the diagram of basic mechanism of chip formation is called as shear angle

    - A narrow region of a work material where plastic deformation takes place when a cutting tool is introduced to it, is called as shear zone.

    - The width of shear zone is very small as it is considered as plane, called as shear plane.

    - This shear plane is inclined at an angle Φ, called as shear angle.
