Direct Proportion Using Hooke's Law
This is a lesson excerpt. To see the whole video go to mindbites.com/lesson/918. This video explains direct proportionality. Professor Burger uses a real-world example of a spring and Hooke's Law using a slinky. Hooke's law states that the distance a spring stretches varies directly to the force applied. If force, f, is directly proportional to distance, d, then d~f or d=kf. This equation allows us to find the constant, k, of how much the spring stretches when force is applied. After
