    Hi Can any please help:

    My course work is asking for me to calculate the Bulk modulus and shear modulus for a material that has a Young's modulus of elasticity of 250GN m-2 and a Poisson's ratio of 0.32???

    Any help will be great thanks

    Does your course work include an explanation of what Poisson's ratio represents?

    Here is a refresher:


    There's also an article on bulk modulus:
