Hooke's Law

Output: Press calculate

Formula:F = k * x

Introduction to Hooke's Law Calculator

Hooke's Law is a principle of physics that states the force F needed to extend or compress a spring by some distance X is proportional to that distance. That is, F = k * x, where F is the force applied, k is the force constant of the spring (also known as the spring constant), and x is the extension (or compression) of the spring from its original length.

Parameter usage:

Example valid values:


Data validation

Checks are included to ensure both the force constant and extension are positive values.


This calculator determines the force required to either extend or compress a spring based on Hooke's Law, illustrating the proportional relationship between force and displacement.
