Main Question or Discussion Point

I am working on my extended essay in IB Physics and would like to have some experimental data. More specifically I need Young's modulus of spaghetti (Panzani -- if possible :). In case you've done a lab or some other research where you calculated this value, please send me a link (or just any other info you may have). thx
Simon

.... came across this a while ago :

G.V. Guinea et al, Brittle failure of dry spaghetti, Engineering Failure Analysis, 11, 2004, 705-714.

.... in it for durum wheat semolina, base material for spaghetti, they among other stuff do tensile tests and arrive at an elastic modulus of 5 GPa. I first picked the article since was interested about pasta fracture morphology, perhaps to improve my cooking . :biggrin:
