Description

The elastic2 data frame has 9 rows and 2 columns giving, for each amount by which an elastic band is stretched over the end of a ruler, the distance that the band traveled when released.

Usage

elastic2

Format

This data frame contains the following columns:

stretch

the amount by which the elastic band was stretched

distance

the distance traveled
