Young mo·du·lus

(yŭng),
a type of modulus of elasticity that specifies the force applied to a body in one direction, per unit of cross-sectional area of the body perpendicular to that direction, divided by the fractional change in length of the body in that direction.

Young mod·u·lus

(yŭng modyū-lŭs)
A type of modulus of elasticity that specifies the force applied to a body in one direction, per unit cross-sectional area of the body perpendicular to that direction, divided by the fractional change in length of the body in that direction.

Young,
