Elastic Potential Energy?

Answer

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.
