**[SOLVED] Hookes law equation for all gauges of copper wire**

**1. Homework Statement**

For my coursework i'm trying to find an equation using hookes law that works with all gauges of copper wire, i know that this means i will have to change the hookes law equation from F=ke to F=ake (a is not the area it's just a letter for the constant that i need to find)

**2. Homework Equations**

F=ke

F=ake

Youngs modulus

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

i've tried working out the stiffness for several wire gauges and seeing if there was a pattern to them but my teacher said i should involve the youngs modulus equation.

Any help really appreciated
