Expert Answer:

Within the elastic limit, stress is proportional to its corresponding strain.  This statement is called the fundamental law of elasticity or Hooke's law.

Stress is proportional to strain or Syntax error from line 1 column 49 to line 1 column 73. Unexpected '<mstyle '.

Where k is a constant of proportionality, and is known as the coefficient (or modulus) of elasticity.
