Determination of Young Modulus of Metallic wire-Kit

£38.95

Price as configured: £0.00

Quick Overview

Hang two identical wires from a beam and attach a scale to the first wire and a small weight to keep it straight. Also put a small weight on the second wire to straighten it and a vernier scale linking with the scale on the comparison wire. Measure the original length, l , of the test wire and its diameter at various points along its length. Use this to calculate the mean cross-sectional area A.
Then place a load of 5 N on the test wire and find the extension, x. Repeat this in 5 N steps up to at least 50N. Plot a graph of load ( y-axis ) against extension (x-axis ) and calculate the gradient. Use this to find a value for the Young modulus.
