HOOKE'S LAW

Introduction

Aim of the experiment: To understand the Hooke's Law by calculating the spring constant of a given spiral spring.

Background Information: Provided that the stretching force does not extend a spring beyond its elastic limit, the extension of the spring is directly proportional to the stretching force. This is known as the Hooke's Law. The stretching force and the amount of extension can be expressed as :

Stretching force = spring constant x amount of extension of the spring
