Unformatted text preview: that, when the material is stretched in a direction parallel to one of the cube edges, Young's modulus E is given by: mnkT M E = W Where W is the mean atomic volume, k is Boltzmann's constant and T M is the absolute melting temperature of the solid. You may assume that U 0 ( r 0 ) = kT M ,where r0 is the equilibrium separation of a pair of atoms....
