What Happened Today in the History of Chemistry? English scientist Robert Hooke was born on this day in 1635. Robert Hooke was particularly interested in biology when he was younger. It was thought that he would get a good education and join the church, like his three brothers who later worked in the church. However, his family had him expelled from school, fearing that Hooke would not live long due to chronic headaches while working.
Born in Freshwater on the Isle of Wight, Hooke received his primary education on the Isle of Wight, and at the age of 13, Dr. He was educated at Westminster School under Busby. In 1653, Hooke took his place as choir at the Church of Christ in Oxford. Here, he met and assisted Robert Boyle. Since Boyle was not a mathematician, it is likely that Hooke formulated Boyle's law, which is part of the ideal gas law. The cell was first discovered in 1665 by an English scientist, Robert Hooke, as empty chambers in dead cork tissue. Robert Hooke named these chambers, which he saw during his studies, as cells. In the following years, it was understood that these chambers were not empty, and that they were the smallest organisms that carried out the vital events of living things.
He invented the microscope in 1665. In his first research, he saw the cell wall of the dead fungus cell, which he called the cell. He is the inventor of Hooke's law ( σ = E.Ԑ Stress = Modulus of Elasticity *Elongation). Hooke's Law is one of the main laws used by engineers in case of elastic deformation.
