Calculate the modulus of elasticity for a composite material consisting of 60 percent
by volume of continuous E-glass fiber and 40 percent epoxy resin for the matrix when
stressed under isostress conditions. The modulus of elasticity of the E glass is 72.4 GPa and
that of the epoxy resin is 3.1GPa.
