# Elastic Modulus

Elastic modulus (Young's modulus), abbreviated as \(\lambda\) (Greek symbol lambda), also called modulus of elasticity, is the ratio of the stress applied to a body or substance to the resulting strain within the elastic limits.

## Formulas that use Elastic Modulus

\(\large{ \lambda = \frac { \sigma } { \epsilon } }\) |

### Where:

\(\large{ \lambda }\) (Greek symbol lambda) = elastic modulus

\(\large{ \epsilon }\) (Greek symbol epsilon) = strain

\(\large{ \sigma }\) (Greek symbol sigma) = stress
