I have a rubber (harness A of 54 and elongation at break of 100%) on which 30N of force is applied over 45mm2 of ares. I would like to know the strain induced in the rubber against the force. The problem here is i could not find the exact Young's modulus value for this material. But i have tensile strength value, it is 3 N/mm2. Could anybody please let me know the approach to calculate the strain. And also i would like to know why Young's modulus is not an important property for rubbers.
