coefficient of elasticity -  the ratio of the applied stress to the change in shape of an elastic body.
Bulk modulus (the ratio of the change in pressure acting on a volume to the fractional change in volume)
Coefficient of elasticity=stress/strain.As strain is dimensionless,coefficient of elasticity has got the dimensions of stress i.e.,
dimension of bulk modulus is MLT
