How Does The Young’s Modulus of a Sweet Lace Compare To The Young’s Modulus of the Cables Supporting The Millennium Bridge ?

Visit: The Millennium Bridge

For our physics practical, we visited The Millennium Bridge a pedestrian footbridge located at the heart of London that crosses the River Thames. It links the City and St Paul’s Cathedral to the north with the Globe Theatre and Tate Modern on Bankside. Construction of this infrastructure began in the late 1998 by the engineering company Arup and it was launched on the 10 June 2000.

Structure of Bridge:
Structurally, the bridge is a composition of two key metals steel (2 x 1011 Nm-2) and aluminum. These metals are common in bridges due to their properties of high strength and
Similarly, we will use this property to calculate the Young’s Modulus of a sweet lace in our practical and will see how it compares to the Young’s modulus of the cables in the bridge.

To Find the Young’s Modulus:
