# Hooke's Law (Modulus of Elasticity)

## Table of Contents

$$ \frac{F}{A} = E\frac{\Delta L}{L} $$

Where

- \(F\) is the force applied to the material,
- \(A\) is the area of the material where force is applied,
- \(E\) is the modulus of elasticity (a.ka. Young’s modulus) of the material,
- \(\Delta L\) is the change in length of the material, and
- \(L\) is the original length of the material.

This version of Hooke’s Law is generalized from the original version used to describe the force of springs.
