## What is Young's Modulus?

Young's modulus is a measure of the ability of a material to withstand changes in length when under lengthwise tension or compression. In other words, Young's modulus, the Young modulus, or the modulus of elasticity in tension, is a mechanical property that measures the tensile stiffness of a solid material. Young's moduli are typically so large that they are expressed not in pascals but in gigapascals (GPa). Although Young's modulus is named after the 19th-century British scientist Thomas Young, the concept was developed in 1727 by Leonhard Euler.

## How to Calculate Young's Modulus?

Young's Modulus calculator uses Young's Modulus=Stress/Strain to calculate the Young's Modulus, Young’s modulus which can also be called elastic modulus is a mechanical property of linear elastic solid substances. It describes the relationship between stress (force per unit area) and strain (proportional deformation in an object). Young's Modulus and is denoted by E symbol.

How to calculate Young's Modulus using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Young's Modulus, enter Stress (σ) and Strain (ε) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Young's Modulus calculation can be explained with given input values -> 12 = 12000/1000.

### FAQ

What is Young's Modulus?
Young’s modulus which can also be called elastic modulus is a mechanical property of linear elastic solid substances. It describes the relationship between stress (force per unit area) and strain (proportional deformation in an object) and is represented as E=σ/ε or Young's Modulus=Stress/Strain. The stress applied to a material is the force per unit area applied to the material. The maximum stress a material can stand before it breaks is called the breaking stress or ultimate tensile stress and Strain is simply the measure of how much an object is stretched or deformed.
How to calculate Young's Modulus?
Young’s modulus which can also be called elastic modulus is a mechanical property of linear elastic solid substances.
