What is the Dimensional Formula of Coefficient of Elasticity?

Posted in Dimensional Formulae | Email This Post Email This Post |

Coefficient of Elasticity is defined as the ratio of stress and strain.
Mathematically

Coefficient of Elasticity = Stress/Strain

Now we know
Strain= Change in dimension/Original dimension
Stress = Force/ Area

Thus
Dimensional Formula of Stress= (M1L-1T-2)
Dimensional Formula of Strain= (M0L0T0)

Putting these values in above equation we get
Dimensional Formula of Coefficient of Elasticity= M1L-1T-2
SI units
of Coefficient of Elasticity is Nm-2

Please note the units of Coefficient of Elasticity are same as that of Stress, Pressure because Strain has no units.

    M8e I believe that it should be L^2 as it is force over area, which is pressure noon.
