The angle made by the resultant stress with the normal of the oblique plain is known as obliquity.

A plane under complex stress has a normal and shear stress acting simultaneously. Then there will be a resultant stress. The angle between the resultant and normal stress is called the angle of obliquity and is represented by a......above statement is incorrect .. correct answer is rotation

It is rotation angle

The above definition is wrong according to the figure,

The definition will be,
Obliquity is the angle between resultant stress and normal stress.

Angle of obliquity: It is the angle made by normal stress with the tangential stress.
