I've got to work out the Youngs modulus of a meterial using the equation k=EA/L which rearrnged to E=kL/A i know k because its the gradient of a force extension graph i made, A is the x-sectional area of the wire and L is original length of the wire. wiki says the youngs modulus of copper 110-130 Giga Pascals but i get something stupid like 0.009Gpa.

Good to hear. Sometimes it always boils down to something simple like the units.
