Hooke's Law pamphlet. Front page of a pamphlet dating from 1678, detailing what would later become known as Hooke's law. Physicist Robert Hooke (1635-1703) experimented with springs and discovered that, up to an elastic limit, the extension of a spring was directly proportional to the force applied. This law has great importance in engineering and physics, and can be broadly applied to many materials.
