Wall-mounted Simple determination of Young s modulus Verification of

warranty Range of Experiments To determine Young s modulus of elasticity
for the specimen wire To verify Hooke s Law Description Loaded wires
form a simple experiment which produces excellent and easy to understand
results. A single wire can be used to determine Young s Modulus of
Elasticity for the material, and to confirm Hooke s Law. Two brackets
are secured to a wall minimum 2m apart in a vertical line; a top bracket
from which to hang a specimen wire, and a slider bracket used to
measure the extension of the wire. The slider includes a vernier for
accurate measurement. For safety, the lower bracket should be reasonably
close to the ground. This equipment is part of a range designed to both
demonstrate and experimentally confirm basic engineering principles.
Great care has been given to each item so as to provide wide
experimental scope without unduly complicating or compromising the
design. Each piece of apparatus is self-contained and compact. Setting
up time is minimal, and all measurements are made with the simplest
possible instrumentation, so that the student involvement is purely with
the engineering principles being taught. A complete instruction manual
is provided describing the apparatus, its application, experimental
procedure and typical test results.
