- Robert Hooke
- Hooke's Law
- The extension of a spring is proportional to the force applied to it,
- can also be written as F=kx
- F is the load of the force stretching the spring
- k is the stiffness of the spring
- x is the extension of the spring

- can also be written as F=kx

- The extension of a spring is proportional to the force applied to it,
- natural philos-opher an early scientist
- wrote a book called micrographia
- detailed drawing of things he saw
