Abstract: This paper describes the design and construction of a simple laboratory instrument to obtain Young’s modulus (Y) of metal wires. This designed setup can give values of Y  correct to within 2%. The instrument was designed to be used in higher secondary schools and undergraduate practical classes. The current setup can be constructed quite economically using readily available cheap items. The current setup was used to calculate values of Y for copper wire.
