## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello,

I am currently carrying out an dynamic investigation of young's modulus for various linear materials such as copper, steel, and nylon but I am unsure how to find the modulus for wood.

I have several ideas including fixing one end of a sample length of wood to bench while placing a fixed load on the other and measure the extension, then work out the tensile force and strain from that.

Would this work?

Does anyone have any ideas or advice/criticism?

Regards,

Mark
