When a stress is applied to a material, it will deform. In this experiment we calculate
Young’s modulus, the constant of proportionality between tension strain and stress in a
wire. The stress will be produced by placing kilogram weights on a hanger suspended
from a steel wire. We will use a micrometer screw to determine elongation, from which
we calculate the amount of strain.
