Past Research

Today I searched my question on the internet to see peoples thoughts/ results on this experiment and i found this one specific site , This experiment did something similar to my experiment but it used weights and springs to find the results instead of what i did with the elastic band and the newton spring scale. This site also talks about a scientist in 1676 named Robert Hooke who performed this sort of experiment and received the same sorts of results that I received. Hooke realized that the more force that is put on to a piece of elastic or a spring, the more it will stretch, and he also realized that the length increased by the same amount every time the force was increased by a fixed amount.
