: the ratio of the stress in a body to the corresponding strain (as in bulk modulus, shear modulus, and Young's modulus) — called also coefficient of elasticity, elastic modulus

* * *

Physics.
any of several coefficients of elasticity of a body, expressing the ratio between a stress or force per unit area that acts to deform the body and the corresponding fractional deformation caused by the stress. Also called coefficient of elasticity, elastic modulus.
