The correct answer is (a) True

To explain: The equations of motion for plane elasticity problems are given by D*σ+f=ρü in the vector form, where f denotes body force vector, σ is the stress vector, u is displacement vector, D is a matrix of the differential operator, and ρ is the density. Note that the equations of motion of plane stress and plane strain cases differ from each other only on account of the difference in their constitutive equations.
