I have found a website which claims that rubber bands obey a force law(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]F=-kT(x-\frac{1}{x^2})[/tex]

[tex]x=\frac{L}{L_0}[/tex]

While this is similar to Hooke's Law in the sense that it *almost* approaches it for large values of x, it is also quite different. Can anyone confirm or deny the formula's reliability? Thanks.
