Correct Answer - Option 1 : 0.4

Concept:

E = 2G(1 + v)

where E = Modulus of elasticity, G = Modulus of rigidity, ν = Poisons ratio.

Calculation:

Given:

Poisson's ratio, v = 0.25

the ratio of modulus of rigidity to modulus of elasticity = $\frac{G}{E}$

$\frac{G}{E} = \frac{1}{{2\left( {1 + v} \right)}}$

$\frac{G}{E} = \frac{1}{{2\left( {1 + 0.25} \right)}}$

$\frac{G}{E} = 0.4$

Hence the required value of the ratio of modulus of rigidity to modulus of elasticity is 0.4.
