## Elasticity Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the elastic modulus of a material.

E = Se/Sa

- Where E is the elastic modulus
- Sa is the strain
- Se is the stress

It’s important to note that this is strain and stress in the same direction, i.e. axial.

## Elasticity Definition

Elasticity is the ratio of strain to the stress of an object or material. In other words, how much a material stretches while under certain stress.

## How to calculate elasticity?

How to calculate elasticity

**First, measure the strain on an object**Measure the strain on an object using proper instrumentation.

**Next, measure the stress on an object**Using the same instrumentation/press, measure the stress on the object.

**Calculate the elastic modulus**Calculator the elastic modulus using the formula above.

## FAQ

**What is elasticity?**

Elasticity is a measure of a materials resistance to deforming under stress. The higher the elasticity, the more a material deforms under stress.
