Properties of bulk matter include key concepts such as stress, strain, elasticity, Hook’s law, and other concepts related to fluids such as Pascal’s law, viscosity, surface energy, etc.

Stress is the internal restoring force acting on a deformed body per unit area. While the strain is the ratio of change in the shape of the body to the original shape of the body. According to Hook’s law stress is directly proportional to the strain within the elastic limits.

Modulus of elasticity for a body is defined as t*he ratio of stress to its corresponding strain within the elastic limit*. There are three types of modulus of elasticity and they are:

- Young’s modulus of elasticity, Y: It is defined as the ratio of normal stress to the longitudinal strain within the elastic limit.
- Bulk modulus of elasticity, K: It is defined as the ratio of normal stress to the volumetric strain within the elastic limit.
- Modulus of rigidity, Î·: It is the ratio of tangential stress to shearing strain
