Science Of Stupid – The PogoStick

By Stephanie Inocencio

Studying Hooke’s Law by using The PogoStick.

If you want to enjoy playing the pogo stick without hurting yourself too much I think you need to know that it’s all about physics! What is Robert Hooke’s Law? Hooke’s Law is a law that shows the relationship between the forces applied to a spring and its elasticity. If you will apply it with the pogo stick Hooke’s Law will be the amount of force that is place on the pogo stick (how hard you jump) will affect how high you go on in the air. The weight of the person can also affect on how high will you go on a pogo stick. The heavier weight will most likely jump higher than with the lesser weight because they will apply more force in jumping.
