  • 00:35 Why add a weight at this point?
  • 00:46 Why do we measure the diameter in several places?
  • 01:23 What should be plotted on the:
    - x – axis
    - y – axis?
  • support beam

  • comparison and test wires

  • ten 5 Newton weights

  • safety glasses

Hazard Risk Control measure

Breaking wire

Physical injury if the wire breaks.

Students should wear eye protection and should provide safe landing for the load should sample break, e.g. a box containing old cloth/sponges etc.
