What I wish to know is how does one calculate the energy density of materials such as silicon.

I was told that a way of finding energy density is through the calculation of stress-Strain Curve.


but I feel like there is something wrong here, can someone help me?

what would be the best formula to getting the energy density value of Joules per cubic Centimeter?

  • $\begingroup$ What do you mean by energy density? Integrating the stress strain curve will give you the elastic energy ... $\endgroup$ – John Rennie Jan 23 at 19:29
  • $\begingroup$ @John Rennie What I mean is the result from the the strain energy density after finding the total strain energy stored in J/m^3 $\endgroup$ – C. Jordan Jan 23 at 20:05
