Relation between Young's modulus and the coefficient of thermal expansion

  • #1
Is it true for all material that if young's modulus is high then melting point will be high and coeff of thermal expansion will be lower? Any example that doesn't follow the above statement.

Many Thanks

Please see the discussion of the correlation between stiffness, melting temperature, and thermal expansion here. You can investigate the correlation using Wolfram Alpha and verify that for the chemical elements, for example, the correlations exist but are not perfect.
