Experiment two examined how annealing times and annealing temperature affected the hardness of copper. Each of the six specimens of commercially pure copper was subjected to different amounts of annealing subsequent to cold rolling. For a copper sample annealed at 0 C for 0 minutes, the measured hardness was 156.6HRB (Bendrich, pp178-256). The hardness decreased as time and temperature were increased.
