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.

the Young modulus of PAN/5% AM was better than other precursors.
The fibers fabricated from a dope containing 18 wt% PAN and 5 wt% AM had the highest Young Modulus and also exhibited superior process, thus 5 wt% AM is the optimum amount of comonomer for PAN precursor fibers.
It leads to an increase of tensile strength while Young modulus decreases due to the easiness of the movement at the filler-matrix interfaces which was very limited before.
