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?

  1. First, determine the stress.

    Measure the total stress acting on the cross-sectional area.

  2. Next, determine the strain.

    Measure the total strain under the stress condition from step 1.

  3. Finally, calculate the young’s modulus.

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


What is young’s modulus?

Young’s modulus is the ratio of stress to strain in an object, which is also known as material elasticity.
