A note to my readers

I make a conscious effort to avoid arbitrary targets – it seems nonsensical to center your appreciation of a loved one on the 14th of February, to delay making a positive change because the Gregorian calendar has not reset or to be more charitable once a year due to a festival from a religion you are not a member of. 2,069 more words

Introduction to Hooke’s Law

Hooke’s Law states that the extension of an elastic object is directly proportional to the force applied to it up to the limit of proportionality (elastic limit). 923 more words

Hooke's Law

Hooke’s law is basically a rule that shows the relationship between the Force of a spring and the extension of a spring. All springs have a spring constant (measure in Newtons per Metre or N/M) which tells us how many Newtons (or how much force) is needed to extend that spring ( or whatever material it is) by 1 Metre. 212 more words
