Shear modulus or modulus of rigidity μ is defined as the ratio of shear stress to the shear strain.

Shear modulus of elasticity is a coefficient of elasticity of a substance, expressing the ratio between the force per unit area (shearing stress) that laterally deforms the substance and the shear (shearing strain) that is produced by this force.

Ya Modules of Elasticity Means Young's Modulus.

Shear Modulus Means Modulus of Rigidity.
