Summary:
  • State Hooke’s law.
  • Explain Hooke’s law using graphical representation between deformation and applied force.
  • Discuss the three types of deformations such as changes in length, sideways shear and changes in volume.
  • Describe with examples the young’s modulus, shear modulus and bulk modulus.
  • Determine the change in length given mass, length and radius.
Subject: Science and Technology
Keywords: bulk modulus, compression, deformation, force, Hooke’s law, length, shear deformation, shear modulus, strain, stress, tensile strength, tension, Young’s modulus
