Are my concepts right?

-air is the damping force in oscillatory motions


also, in what conditions is Hooke's Law invalid?

thanks

More correctly, air is A damping force. In most situations I would not consider it the main damping force.

Hooks law is no longer valid if the spring is streched beyond its elastic limits.

If you want a better answer you will need to provide more details.
