Question
Dear ZZ

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elasticity_(physics)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hooke's_law

Is it possible to benchmark with different tests performed and define a table for different materials viz Wool, Silk, Amber, Nylon, Rubber etc regarding the Elasticity nature in them ?.

For examples :

Can we derive saying Wool is more elastic than Silk ?.
Nylon has the least elastic property ?.

The Table defined will have two columns namely Material and Elastic property. The Elastic property column will have a numeric or % field.

Is it possible to define such a table or any other alternative tests performed ?.

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar
