# 20.21 Relationship between Young’s modulus and bulk modulus

In post 20.20, we anticipated that there must be some relationship between the Young’s modulus, E (post 20.2) and the bulk modulus, B (post 20.20) of a material. The relationship is given by E = 3B(1 – 2ν) (1) where ν is the Poisson’s ratio (post 20.5) of the material. We shouldn’t be surprised by… Continue reading 20.21 Relationship between Young’s modulus and bulk modulus
