Elastic Modulus of Aluminum (Al) + Sources, Name Origin ...

One important property is the elastic modulus which tell us something about a material's resistance (even for Aluminum). Ok, so what is the elastic modulus of an atom of Al?

Note: Learn more about the elastic modulus here.

In the case of Aluminum, the elastic modulus is 70.5 10³ MPa. Ok now let's dive into the facts about Aluminum that people don't know...

Aluminum Facts

Aluminum Elastic Modulus

70.5 10³ MPa

Atomic Number


Learn more about the atomic number.


Never occurs in free form. Obtained by electrolysis from bauxite (Al2O3).

Atomic Mass

Used for many purposes from airplanes to beverage cans. Too soft in its pure form so less than 1% of silicon or iron is added, which hardens and strengthens it.


Soft, lightweight, silvery-white metal. Third most abundant element in the earth's crust.

Atomic Symbol


Name Origin

Latin: alumen, aluminis, (alum).

State at 20 °C



Discovered By: Hans Christian Oersted
Year: 1825
Location: Denmark

Are you having trouble understanding the basics of atomic elements? This video will walk you through:
  • What is an element
  • What is a substance
  • What Elements look like
  • How a small number of atoms can be joined and form completely different substances


When you need to include a fact or piece of information in an assignment or essay you should also include where and how you found that piece of information.

That gives credibility to your paper and it is sometimes required in higher education.

To make your life (and citation) easier just copy & paste the information below into your assignment or essay:

Luz, Gelson. "Elastic Modulus of Aluminum (Al) + Sources, Name Origin ..." Materials. Gelsonluz.com. dd mmmm. yyyy. <URL>

Now replace dd, mmmm and yyyy with the day, month, and year you browsed this page. Also replace URL for the actual url of this page (The < and > stay, ok?). This citation format is based on MLA.

Colored Periodic Table

Need an editable periodic table to edit? Maybe add your school logo, work team or anything else to make your paper look cool?

Along with basic atom / element information (like Aluminum elastic modulus and all the other atomic data), it also comes with color coded info about: State (Gas, Liquid or Solid at room temperature), Groups/series details and much more...

How about an incentive to share this post? (You will help other colleagues find this blog)
