  • Hookes Law
    • Extension is directly proportional to the force applied.
    • The limit of proportionality is not exceeded.
    • Equation- F=kXe
      • F= force applied Newton N
      • k=spring constant of spring in N
      • Extension is directly proportional to the force applied.
      • e- extension in metres M
    • Stiffer a spring, greater its spring constant.
    • Elastic object is stretched, work is done. Stored as elastic potential energy.
      • When force is removed, this stored energy is released.
