Impact of Atomic Bonding on Elasticity — Lesson 2

In Lesson 1, we saw in our stress-strain curves that different material families had a variety of responses to stress. What are some of the factors affecting elasticity of a material?

Lesson 2 will focus on discussing how the atomic bonds that make up our material families impact their elastic behavior. Use the guided student note sheet here to follow along with the video.
