Abstract

A simple, easily constructed apparatus is described for the measurement of Young's Modulus of metal rods or bars under direct longitudinal stress, with total strain as low as 2 X 10-6 for a specimen of 10 cm. length. The extension of the specimen is magnified by a system consisting of two mechanical and two optical levers.
