Introduction In this experiment, we will explore how stress and strain affect the sag of an aluminum “I” beam. In the first investigation, we will measure the dimensions of the “I” beam and predict the sag given the load and distance between the beam supports. In the second investigation, we measure the sag of the “I” beam under several different loads. Next, we plot the sag of the beam versus the load. Using the slope of the plot, dimensions of the beam, and the location of the supports, we’ll calculate Young’s modulus for aluminum. Using the accepted value for Young’s modulus for aluminum, we can verify our result. If the accepted value for Young’s modulus for aluminum falls within the uncertainty of our result, we will have experimentally verified the relationship between stress, strain, and Hooke’s Law.
