Some general concepts im confused about

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    Hooks law is no longer valid if the spring is streched beyond its elastic limits.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