State Hooke’s Law

Hooke’s Law of Elasticity states that: For small deformations, stress is directly proportional to strain.

 Stress ∝ strain

So, Stress = K. Strain     [ This is Hooke’s Law Equation ] 
  Here K is a constant.

This K is a proportionality constant called the Modulus of Elasticity.
