Hi every body,
nice to join your very interesting & useful form,

I need some help please:
I am a teacher in a technical school and I shall teach my students some terms like:

tensile strength = strong in tension

ductile----ductility
fragile----fragility
durable----durability
combustible-----combustibility
impact resistance = resistant to impact
etc.

Please I want a clear explanation including meaning & right gramatical use because somewhile
I got confused.
Thanks in advance.
Have a nice day.

Hello, Hany!

Why don't you try looking those words up in excellent English-English dictionaries online?

All of them have everything you are asking for: definitions, examples, grammatical use.

Look at these examples:
