Caption: Elasticity experiment. Hands of a schoolchild who is stretching an elastic band. The physics of an elastic band is given by Hooke's Law. As applied to an elastic band, the law states that the band's extension is proportional to the stretching force. If you double the force, you double the extension of the band. This law is no longer true when the elastic limit is reached, causing the band to deform and eventually break.
