  • Hooke's Law
    • Extension is directly proportional to the applied force
      • As long as proportionality is not exceeded
    • When a channel opens, work is done. It is stored as potential energy
      • When a forced is applied, kinetic energy is released
    • z=ykd
      • z = mechanical sensitivity (N)
      • y = geometric spring factor
      • d = extent of shortening of the spring
      • k = the spring stiffness constant
