That least distance is called by Moseley the modulus of stability.
Young's modulus is employed in the cases of stretching and bending.
Here λ and μ are constants, each being a modulus of elasticity.
An ear but moderately learned in that language cannot be deceived as to the rate and modulus of the suffering which it indicates.
It will be observed that in the first process the value of the modulus is in fact calculated from the formula.
This modulus is found in the diameter of the column, and the standard of proportion which is based upon it is called a canon.
Young's contributions to this subject will be chiefly remembered in connection with his "modulus of elasticity."
It is not usual now to express Young's modulus of elasticity in terms of a length of the substance considered.
The modulus of ultimate resilience of the cold-rolled iron is, however, above 50 per cent.
The most important of these are the “modulus of compression” (or “bulk modulus”) and the “rigidity” (or “modulus of shear”).
