**Formula:**`Y = stress / strain`

## Introduction to Young's Modulus

Young's modulus, also known as the elastic modulus, is a measure of the ability of a material to withstand changes in length and is defined as the ratio of the uniaxial stress to the uniaxial strain. In this formula, ** Y** represents Young's modulus,

**is the applied force per unit area, and**

*stress***is the change in length per unit length. Young's modulus is an important parameter in material science and engineering, as it helps to understand and compare the stiffness of different materials.**

*strain*## Parameter usage:

`stress`

= applied force per unit area`strain`

= change in length per unit length

## Example valid values:

`stress`

= 1000 N/m^{2}`strain`

= 0.02

## Output:

`Y`

= Young's modulus

## Data validation

The stress and strain values should be greater than zero. Additionally, the strain should not be zero, as division by zero is undefined.

## Summary

This calculator computes Young's modulus based on the input stress and strain values, providing a measure of a material's stiffness. It helps in understanding the material's behavior under loading conditions and is widely applied in material science and engineering.
