Elastic Potential Energy?


Elastic potential energy refers to the potential energy of an elastic object (for example a bow or a catapult) that is deformed under tension or compression (or stressed in formal terminology). It results from a force that tries to restore the object to its original shape, which is most often the electromagnetic force between the atoms and molecules that constitute the object.
Q&A Related to "Elastic Potential Energy?"
Elastic potential energy depends on the distance the object is compressed or stretched.
A compressed spring is a good example of elastic potential energy;
elastic potential energy: potential energy that is stored when a body is deformed (as in a coiled spring)
Elastic Strain Energy = (1/2)kx^2 where k is the spring constant and x is the extension. to work out the extension do 20N/100Nm^1 to get 0.2m. now we have our variables put them into
1 Additional Answer
Elastic potential energy is the energy that can be either caused by or released by the elastic distortion of either a solid or a liquid. You can find more information here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elastic_Potential_Energy
