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.

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
