THREE-DIMENSIONAL ELASTICITY OF A RUBBERBAND**

Abstract

3D Elasticity of a rubberband. Auric Saha and K.C. Chan When a rubberband is stretched, its length dimension increases at the expenses of the other two dimensions. Exactly how each dimension responds to the stress and how one dimension changed affects the other two, i.e., their correlations, have been investigated by adding more data points and using better precision equipment than was previously reported. Better measurements are needed to resolve whether the dimensional elasticity is a polynomial of degree 3 or degree 4 in order to better understand their correlations. This work also addresses whether a linear range of the elastic behavior is truly meaningful. Also reported is the whether the volume of the rubberband is indeed a constant when it is stretched.
