Hi! I have to make a graph about the stress and strain of a wire for a physics assignment. I'm not quite sure how to do it though. I also have one more assignment that requires having to make a graph so if you could list your steps it would help me out a lot! This is the data I already calculated and the graph I'm supposed to use.

Like so:

You could use the online graphing facility Desmos if you don't have a piece of graphing software yourself.

Hi! Thanks for the response! So it's not possible to put it in the same graph I was supposed to right? Also I was wondering why you went for 1*10^{-3} and 1*10^{8} instead of 1*10^{-4} and 1*10^{7}.

"...*So it's not possible to put it in the same graph I was supposed to right?*..."

Do you mean the graph background has to look just like in the image you uploaded? You would need an electronic version that you can add information to (probably available on-line somewhere), or print off to add the data by hand (or get hold of an actual piece of real, old-fashioned graph paper, if such a thing is still manufactured!).

" *I was wondering why you went for 1*10-3 and 1*108 instead of 1*10-4 and 1*107.*"

I decided to go with the powers of ten that I used simply because I figured it would be easier to type in the digits that way. However, that's just personal preference; there's no great significance in it! The graph was labelled automatically by the software I used.
