Question:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Why is it not sensible to calculate the Young's modulus of the material (steel) when the experiments was conducted?

But I thought it should be possible to calculate the Young's modulus after plotting the stress/strain curve. Young's modulus can be found by finding the gradient of the straight line on the curve. But what with the question?
