 Young Modulus
What is Young Modulus?
in solid mechanics, Young's modulus (also known as the
modulus of elasticity or elastic modulus
)
is a measure of the stiffness of a given material.
is defined as the limit for small strains of the rate of change of stress withstrain.
can be experimentally determined from the slope of a stress-strain curvecreated during tensile tests conducted on a sample of the material.
 Young's modulus is named after
Thomas Young
the English physicist,physician, and Egyptologist
allows the behavior of a material under load to be calculated. For instance, itcan be used to predict the amount a wire will extend under tension, or topredict the load at which a thin column will buckle under compression. Somecalculations also require the use of other material properties, such as theshear modulus, density, or Poisson's ratio. Young's modulus - Linear vs non-linear. For many materials, Young's modulus is a constant over a range of strains. Such materials are called ..
 
Calculation
 The modulus of elasticity, λ, can be calculated by dividing the stress by thestrain, i.e. where (in SI units) λ is the modulus of elasticity, measured inpascals F is the force, measured in newtons A is the cross-sectional areathrough which the force is applied, measured in square metres x is theextension, measured in metres l is the natural length, measured in metres< ...
 Just as what have been stated in the Hooke’s Law where the distorting force Fis directly proportional to the deformation Y stress is directly proportional tostrain thus the equationK (constant)= stress--------Strain
