"At the suggestion of Professor James S. Stevens, and under his supervision, I undertook to apply interference methods of measurement to an experimental determination of Young's modulus for copper, brass, and steel. The metals were in the form of bars, 66 cm x 1 cm x 0.5 cm (approximate dimensions). The general method followed was the so-called "method of flexure" in which a bar, supported at each end on knife edges, if deflected by a weight applied at the center,
