My Aim is to determine the youngs modulus of aluminium from the data we get from tensile strength test.
The attached excel sheet contains all the data i am using such as elongation,load value(which is in kN i have converted to N for calculating Stress)
For stress,
I am using the formula
Stress(ε)=Force/Area
For strain,
I am using the formula
Strain(σ)=ΔL/L
My issue's are,
P.S:This is my first post in the forums so do forgive me for making errors/not following protocol.If I did make such errors please tell me how to fix them :)

My issue's are,
 The linear portion of the stressstrain curve(engineering) is a vertical line when i plot it with excel.This does not let me calculate the slope.
 When i have attempted to calculate Youngs modulus with the formula ε/σ,I am getting a value of
758681.8 N/mm^{2} which is approximately 10x the value which is given online.
