## Homework Statement

How to calculate the modulus of elasticity algebraically? Especially that of a pine wood rectangular cantilever beam? I have a few measurements here. The area inertia is .413 cm^4, the length of the unsupported part of the beam is at 40 centimeters(the whole beam is around 66 centimeters), the deflection is 0.36 centimeters with a load of 1.25 pounds. I'm trying to find the modulus of elasticity is Newtons per centimeters squares. I got 797,775 but it seems way off in comparison to the original module of elasticity. I'm thinking that it's because I'm using the wrong formula. Can someone please help me. I have been sitting here for hours but nothing.
