Calculate an estimate of the final gauge length for each sample using its stress-strain curve. compare these estimates with the measurements you made by putting the broken samples back together. After observing the stress-strain curve for brass, calculating the final gauge length involved taking the strain and multiplying it by the original gauge length to find the
