Covariant Formulation of Hooke's Law.
Gron, O.
American Journal of Physics, v49 n1 p28-30 Jan 1981
Introducing a four-vector strain and a four-force stress, Hooke's law is written as a four-vector equation. This formulation is shown to clarify seemingly paradoxical results in connection with uniformly accelerated motion, and rotational motion with angular acceleration. (Author/JN)
