    Resilience is the amount of energy that can be put into a volume of material and still be stored elastically. ie When the energy goes away, the material regains its undeformed shape. The Mod of R is the amount that can be stored by a unit volume of that material. The Mod of R is heavily related to Youngs Modulus.

    Resilience : The total strain energy stored in a body. Proof resilience : The maximum stain energy stored in a body. Modulus of resilience: The proof resilience of a material per unit volume. (i.e) Modulus of resilience = proof resilience / volume of the body
