State of Plane stress

a.)    When the material is in plane stress in the xy plane, only the x and y faces of the element are subjected to stresses, and all stresses act parallel to the x and y axes

b.)    This stress condition is very common because it exists at the surface of any stressed body, except at points where external loads act on the surface.
