Enter the stress and strain acting on a material into the elasticity calculator. The calculator will return the Elastic Modulus of that material. (For information of elastic forces as it relates to springs, visit our spring force calculator.)

## 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.

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 material resistance to deform under stress. The higher the elasticity, the more a material deforms under stress.
