# Before you start

This TLP assumes that you:

• Are familiar with Young's modulus as a measure of the stiffness of a solid material. A definition is provided.
• Are familiar with the concept of the second moment of area (also called moment of inertia).
• Are familiar with the vibrational atomic interpretation of temperature in a solid, and the energy-displacement relationship for atoms in a solid.
