Enter the total stress and the strain acting on an object. The calculator will evaluate and display the young’s modulus of the material.

## Young’s Modulus Formula

The following equation can be used to calculate the young’s modulus of a material.

Y = S1 / S2

- Where Y is the youngs modulus of elasticity
- S1 is the stress
- S2 is the strain

## Young’s Modulus Definition

Young’s modulus is a simple ratio of stress to the strain of an object or material. In other words, it’s a measure of how much a material deforms under a certain amount of stress. Many materials follow a simple linear young’s modulus up to a point, but others have different curves. These differences are between elastic and inelastic materials.

## Young’s Modulus Example

How to calculate young’s modulus?

**First, determine the stress.**Measure the total stress acting on the cross-sectional area.

**Next, determine the strain.**Measure the total strain under the stress condition from step 1.

**Finally, calculate the young’s modulus.**Using the formula above, calculate the young’s modulus.
