Homework Help: How to get the elongation with modulus of elasticity as the given?

    How can I get the elongation if I'm given with only the modulus of elasticity?
    what will be the formula?

    Are you talking about the extension of a spring? (Hooke's law?)

    Hooke's law is [itex]F = kx[/itex]

    where F is the force applied to the spring, k is the modulus (spring constant), and x is the extension of the spring from its natural length.
