Life and works Hooke's microscopefrom an engraving in Micrographia. Much of what is known of Hooke's early life comes from an autobiography that he commenced in but never completed.
In the chapter Of Dr. Robert was the last of four children, two boys and two girls, and there was an age difference of seven years between him and the next youngest. Robert Hooke was expected to succeed in his education and join the Church. John Hooke also was in charge of a local school, and so was able to teach Robert, at least partly at home perhaps due to the boy's frail health.
He was a Royalist and almost certainly a member of a group who went to pay their respects to Charles I when he escaped to the Isle of Wight.
Robert, too, grew up to be a staunch monarchist. As a youth, Robert Hooke was fascinated by observation, mechanical works, and drawing, interests that he would pursue in various ways throughout his life. He dismantled a brass clock and built a wooden replica that, by all accounts, worked "well enough", and he learned to draw, making his own materials from coal, chalk and ruddle iron ore.
On his father's death inRobert was left a sum of forty pounds   that enabled him to buy an apprenticeship; with his poor health throughout his life but evident mechanical facility his father had it in mind that he might become a watchmaker or limner a decorator of illuminated manuscriptsthough Hooke was also interested in painting.
Hooke was an apt student, so although he went to London to take up an apprenticeship, and studied briefly with Samuel Cowper and Peter Lelyhe was soon able to enter Westminster School in London, under Dr. Hooke quickly mastered Latin and Greek,  made some study of Hebrew, and mastered Euclid's Elements.
It appears that Hooke was one of a group of students whom Busby educated in parallel to the main work of the school. Contemporary accounts say he was "not much seen" in the school, and this appears to be true of others in a similar position.
Busby, an ardent and outspoken Royalist he had the school observe a fast-day on the anniversary of the King's beheadingwas by all accounts trying to preserve the nascent spirit of scientific inquiry that had begun to flourish in Carolean England but which was at odds with the literal Biblical teachings of the Protectorate.
To Busby and his select students the Anglican Church was a framework to support the spirit of inquiry into God's work, those who were able were destined by God to explore and study His creation, and the priesthood functioned as teachers to explain it to those who were less able.
This was exemplified in the person of George Hooperthe Bishop of Bath and Wellswhom Busby described as "the best scholar, the finest gentleman and will make the completest bishop that ever was educated at Westminster School". Oxford Robert Boyle InHooke who had also undertaken a course of twenty lessons on the organ secured a chorister's place at Christ ChurchOxford.
There he met the natural philosopher Robert Boyle, and gained employment as his assistant from about toconstructing, operating, and demonstrating Boyle's "machina Boyleana" or air pump. Hooke himself characterised his Oxford days as the foundation of his lifelong passion for science, and the friends he made there were of paramount importance to him throughout his career, particularly Christopher Wren.
Wadham was then under the guidance of John Wilkinswho had a profound impact on Hooke and those around him.
Wilkins was also a Royalist, and acutely conscious of the turmoil and uncertainty of the times. There was a sense of urgency in preserving the scientific work which they perceived as being threatened by the Protectorate.
Wilkins' "philosophical meetings" in his study were clearly important, though few records survive except for the experiments Boyle conducted in and published in This group went on to form the nucleus of the Royal Society.
Hooke developed an air pump for Boyle's experiments based on the pump of Ralph Greatorexwhich was considered, in Hooke's words, "too gross to perform any great matter.
It has been suggested that Hooke probably made the observations and may well have developed the mathematics of Boyle's law. A chance surviving copy of Willis' pioneering De anima brutorum, a gift from the author, was chosen by Hooke from Wilkins' library on his death as a memento at John Tillotson 's invitation.
This book is now in the Wellcome Library. The book and its inscription in Hooke's hand are a testament to the lasting influence of Wilkins and his circle on the young Hooke. Royal Society The Royal Society was founded inand in April the society debated a short tract on the rising of water in slender glass pipes, in which Hooke reported that the height water rose was related to the bore of the pipe due to what is now termed capillary action.Brownian motion is a non-directional movement triggered when cells are blasted by water molecules.
Brownian motion is generally seen when bacteria are observed in liquid media primarily by the production of gas that bacteria yields, which is converted into liquid fluids.

Water Lab Report - Water is a charged or polar molecule (H+ - O- - H+) that is always moving across cell membranes. Scientists theorize that this is possible because it is such a small molecule or because there are special gap or pores that allow water movement through the cell membrane.
