The image above represents young’s modulus.

To compute for young’s modulus, two essential parameters are needed and these parameters are **Stress **and **Strain.**

The formula for calculating young’s modulus:

Young’s Modulus = ^{Stress} / _{Strain}

Let’s solve an example;

Given that the stress is 12 and the strain is 6. Find the Young’s modulus?

This implies that;

Stress = 12

Strain = 6

Young’s Modulus = ^{Stress} / _{Strain}

Young’s Modulus = ^{12} / _{6}

Young’s Modulus = 2

Therefore, the **young’s modulus **is **2.**

**Calculating the Stress when the Young’s Modulus and the Strain is Given.**

stress = young’s modulus x strain

Let’s solve an example;

Find the stress when the young’s modulus is 32 and the strain is 10.

This implies that;

Young’s Modulus = 32

Strain = 10

stress = young’s modulus x strain

stress = 32 x 10

stress = 320

Therefore, the **stress **is **320.**
