Jeffrey Katz Lab Section 13 Pre-lab #2 Questions 1. The first sample is a popsicle stick/tongue depressor. This is used to measure crosshead displacement. 2. Stress = Load/Area of the middle area Strain = (final displacement – initial displacement) / initial displacement 3. The point of rupture for the popsicle stick and the metals should be clearly defined. However, the popsicle stick’s point of rupture should be right after the point of elastic deformation, as it is an extremely brittle material that should not plastically deform much at all. 4. It should be removed after the specimen yields a second time. At this point, the test is stopped and the extensometer is removed. 5. One inch from each end. 6. Tap it lightly with a brass block. 7. The Modulus of Elasticity for each material is as follows Steel E (ksi ) Yield Stress (in Tension) (ksi) Aluminum E (ksi) Yield Stress (in

In U.S. units, the difference between the higher Young’s Modulus and the lower ones is about 3.45%. However, the load-carrying capacities of the materials is very different, with Quenched and Tempered ASTM-A709 (Grade 100) having the highest yield stress, and ASTM-A36 having the lowest load-capacity....
