Experiments- Hooke's Law and Young Modulus
Factsheet 27 went through the elasticity theory required at A-level (and
probably further) in some detail. Practical Hints:
1. Use only small masses. This gives you more data points. It also
In this Factsheet we will look at some…

Combinations of Springs Practical Hints:
Experimental work is often performed to verify the rules for combining Use small extensions for the spring (small masses) to ensure that you are
springs in series and parallel. operating in the Hooke's Law region. However…

The Young modulus (revision):
As mentioned, the Young modulus is a property of a material. Instead of A graph of results will resemble this example:
applied force, we use tensile stress (the force applied per unit cross-
sectional area); instead of…
