The ratio of the force exerted upon a substance or body to the resultant deformation.
- A linear statics analysis, for example, will require an elastic modulus, Poisson's ratio and perhaps a density for each material.
- But like the body waves, surface waves give ratios of elastic moduli to density.
- The instantaneous and equilibrium elastic moduli and the apparent viscosity of the cell were significantly decreased by hypoosmotic stress, but were unchanged by hyperosmotic stress.
