Young's Modulus Calculators
Young's modulus is a physical quantity that describes the ability of a solid material to resist deformation. A wire of length L and cross-sectional area S is stretched by ΔL under the action of a force F. F/S is called stress, and its physical meaning is the force per unit cross-sectional area of the metal wire; ΔL/L is called strain, and its physical meaning is the elongation corresponding to the unit length of the metal wire. The ratio of stress to strain is called modulus of elasticity: ie. ΔL is a small amount of change.
