Hooke's Law

Redirected from Hooke's law

In physics, Hooke's Law of elasticity states that the extension of an elastic spring is linearly proportional to its tension[?].

It is named for the 17th century physicist Robert Hooke, who initially published it as an anagram ceiiinossssttuu, which he later revealed to mean ut tensio sic vis, or as the extension, the force.
