The Born stability criteria are applied to variously elastically deformed perfect crystals of argon, represented by a Lennard-Jones potential, and sodium chloride, represented by a Born-Mayer potential. It is shown that when highly strained in tension argon and sodium chloride crystals become unstable before the maximum in the ideal stress-strain curve is reached. The consequent reductions in our previous estimates of the ideal tensile strength (part I) are small (< 10 %) except fordoi:10.1098/rspa.1972.0147 fatcat:iireb2l74rerbjjku4yixrnt5i
