Warning: do not run the computer homework directly from the web. Instead, first create a folder named Physics on your computer. Then SAVE (do not RUN) the programs below into the Physics folder. You may have to move the program from the Download folder into your new Physics folder. Be sure you have the actual program in the folder, and not just a shortcut. Then RUN the programs from the folder. Your response file, STRES.DAT, should then be found in the Physics folder.
