Stiffness

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

stiffnessStiffness, abbreviated as k, is the resistance of the elastic deformation of an object that applies to both compression and tension.

Stiffness formula

\(\large{ k = \frac{F}{\delta} }\)

Where:

\(\large{ k }\) = stiffness

\(\large{ F }\) = applied force

\(\large{ \delta }\)  (Greek symbol delta) = displacement
