# Compressed springs and streched rubber bands are stored what energy?

Potential energy.

# How is energy stored in a compressed spring?

The matter in a spring is in a form that wants to bend back into shape when bent. This is called elasticity. When you compress the spring, it wants to spread itself out again,
