Modulus of Elasticity

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Properties

formula

\(\lambda = \frac { S } { \epsilon } \)

Where:

\(\lambda\) = modulus of elasticity (Greek symbol lambda)

\(S\) = stress

\(\epsilon\) = strain

Solve for:

\(S = \lambda \epsilon \)

\(\epsilon = \frac { S } { \lambda } \)
