Terminology issue

  1. Oct 29, 2005 #1
    I am a non-native English speaker, but i have to write my homework in English due to IB programme.

    Anyway the question is - what is the correct term for torpidity coefficient (direct translation from Latvian). It is the force required to stretch smth (a wire, a spring or smth similar) to extend it 1m longer. And is measured as follows [k]=N/m
