Hooke's Law of elasticity is an approximation that states that the amount by which a material body is deformed (the strain) is linearly related to the force causing the deformation (the stress).

## Formula

Force : F_{x}=-k(x-x_{o}),

Spring Force Constant : k=F_{x}/(x-x_{o}),

Distance from Equilibrium : x_{o}=(F_{x}/k)+x,

Spring Equilibrium Position : x=x_{o}-(f_{x}/h)

**where,**

F_{x} = Force,

k = Spring Force Constant,

x =Distance from Equilibrium,

x_{0} = Spring Equilibrium Position.

### Imporance of Hookes law

Hookes law is important because it helps us understand how a stretchy object will behave when it is stretched or compacted

Hooke's law states that within the elastic limit, stress developed is directly proportional to the strain produced in a body. According to the Hookes law, if strain increases the stress will increase and vice-versa. The Hooke's law is applicable to all elastic substances.
