shear stress, τ = F/A o where F // A shear strain, γ = tan θ Hooke’s law shows a linear relationship between stress and strain: s = Ee for normal stress and τ = G γ for shear stress For metals Hooke’s law applies to the elastic region where there are relatively low values of stress and strain. Young’s modulus, E (aka elastic modulus or modulus of elasticity)
