Resource type: Equation
Description: Young's modulus is the relationship between stress and strain where a material is being deformed elastically and the stress/strain curve is linear.

TeX format: E = \frac{\sigma}{\varepsilon}

E {E} = Young's modulus (modulus of elasticity) (Pa) {Pa}
σ {\sigma} = Stress (Pa) {Pa}
ε {\varepsilon} = Strain

Keywords: Young • stress • strain • deformation • elastic • stiffness • strain gauge
