wat is hookes law

Hooke's Law is the basic law in elasticity.
It states that the extension produced in a wire is directly proportional to the load attached to it .

Thus , according to Hooke's Law ,extension is directly proportional to load. However, this proportionality holds good up to a certain limit called the elastic limit.
Within elastic limit , the stress developed is directly proportional to the strain produced in the body.
      stress = E x strain
  E= constant or modulus of elasticity
