Product Details

Hooke's Law Physics Experiment Kit
by Science Supply Solutions

The detailed activity guide in this kit, along with its tape measure, colorful plastic hex weights, and spring scale, will show and explain to you how to make a scale that is capable of weighing a number of common household objects through the use of Hooke's Law.

Named after the 17th century British physicist Robert Hooke, he first stated his law in 1660 as a Latin anagram. He didn't publish the solution until 18 years later. Hooke's Law, a principle of physics, states that the force that is needed to extend, or compress, a spring by some distance is proportional to that distance. Despite t hat generalization, rubber is actually considered to be "non-Hookean", as its elasticity is both dependent and sensitive to the temperature and loading rate.
