Lesson: Hooke’s LawMathematics
In this lesson, we will learn how to find the force of stretching or compressing an elastic string or elastic spring using Hooke’s law.
Sample Question Videos
A ball of mass 0.5 kg hangs in equilibrium from the ceiling by a light elastic spring of natural length 1.2 m and a modulus of elasticity 9.8 N. How much energy is stored in the spring? Take .
An elastic string of natural length 4 m and modulus of elasticity 8 N is stretched to a length of 4.5 m. How much energy is stored in the stretched string?
A ball of mass 1.8 kg is attached to one end of a light elastic string of natural length 2.4 m and modulus of elasticity 17.1 N. The other end of the string is fixed at a point . The ball is released from rest at . Taking , find how far below the ball reaches before coming instantaneously to rest.
