A Developed Version of the Hooke’s Law

Full Text PDF


The paper contains a proper approach to the Hooke’s law as well as its developed version. A system approach was applied covering all the process of material elongation. An adequate interpretation of this law is given indicating that it touches only changes of magnitudes which describe the considered reality. The plot of elongation curve has been presented by separating a series of proper zones connected with the phenomena occurring in this process. A developed version of the Hooke’s law, taking into account the considered reality concerning the material stress both its own as well as caused by external loading, is the conclusion of these considerations.
