Solutions and Data

Data adapted from rubber band stress-strain data originally acquired by Umpqua Community College Students: Brittany Watts, Ashlie DeHart, Hanna Wicks and Juan Martinez.


Photograph of a 1 mm x 3 mm rubber band during stress testing. The band runs through the slots in the gray weights and the hook attached to the bottom of the band is just visible through the slot in the lowest group of smaller (0.98 N) weights. The 119 N of force is applying 1.3 x 1013 Pa of stress, causing a strain of 660 %. Photo credit: Umpqua Community College student Samual Marsters.
