Neoprene (material wetsuits are made from)
I am doing my physics a level coursework on neoprene. I'm finding it extremely difficult to find the Young's Modulus for this and the microscopic and macroscopic is anybody able to help me with this?
any other information would be great help too!
Thank you
Emma

Neoprene, like any elastomer, can be formulated to have a wide variety of different hardnesses. It can be made as a foam, soft enough to make a pillow out of, or as hard as a hockey puck.
