If a rigid body is in equilibrium under a system of forces the virtual work done by this system of forces during virtual displacement is zero. This principle is known as

1.Bernauli's principle

2. Mecaulay's principle

3.Work energy principle

4.Castigliano's principle

In a linearly elastic structure, partial derivative of the strain energy with respect to a load is equal to the deflection of the point where the load is acting, the deflection being measured in the direction of the load. This is known as
