Enter the force, initial length, area, and transverse displacement into the calculator to determine the shear modulus.

## Shear Modulus Formula

The following equation is used to calculate a shear modulus of a material.

G = F * L / A * D

- Where G is the shear modulus (pascals)
- F is the force (N)
- L is the initial length (m)
- A is the area being acted on (m^2)
- D is the transfer displacement (m)

## FAQ

**What is a shear modulus?**

A shear modulus, also know as rigidity modulus, is the ratio of shear stress to shear strain acting on an object.

**How is shear modulus calculated?**

Shear modulus is calculated using the formula above. It’s equal to shear stress divided by shear strain.

**What’s the difference between shear modulus and Youngs modulus.**

Shear modulus is a measure of rigidity of an object. Youngs modulus is a measure of elasticity of an object.
