Theory of Young's Modulus for a Metallic Rod Experiment
Young's modulus, also known as the elastic modulus, is a measure of the stiffness of a solid material. It is a mechanical property of linear elastic solid materials. It defines the relationship between stress (force per unit area) and strain (proportional deformation) in a material.
Bending of Beam Virtual Experiment (Young's Modulus for a Metallic Rod) | Principle
In Young's Modulus for a Metallic Rod experiment, A metal beam which is supported near its ends, is subjected to a load at its center will suffer a depression that can be used using a gauge. Relating the measured depression to the applied load, will enable us to determine Young’s modulus of the beam’s material.
