What is the name for energy stored by a stretched or compressed object?

Elastic energy, for example, a stretched spring.

What form of energy does a compressed spring have?

This is known as elastic energy. It is a type of potential energy.

Give one example of an object before and after it has gained elastic potential energy?

Elastic potential energy refers to the potential energy stored as a result of deformation of an elastic object. An example of this is a spring, which springs back before it has gained elastic potential energy. After a spring gains elastic potential energy, it will be deformed.

What is a form of potential energy?

There are three main types of potential energy: elastic potential energy, gravitational potential energy, and chemical potential energy. Elastic potential energy is stored in objects that can either be stretched or compressed. The more the object is stretched or compressed, the more elastic potential energy it'll have.

What type of energy is stored in the elastic?

Potential Elastic Energy.

What energy is in elastic objects?

kinetic and elastic potential energy

What sentence can you use for elastic potential energy?

elastic potential energy is stored by the forces within a disorted elastic object

What kinds of energy does a spring have?

a spring possesses elastic potential energy when compressed or stretched.

How does an elastic power car work?

Elastic cars work by converting elastic potential energy into kinetic energy. The most potential energy, the more kinetic energy.

What elastic potential energy depends on?

Elastic potential energy depends on the distance the object is compressed or stretched.

Is potential energy that depends on height is elastic potential energy?


Does kinetic energy and elastic potential energy have anything in common?

Yes because in a catapult the potential energy in a stretched piece of elastic is transferred to a stone as kinetic energy. The potential energy came from the user who stretched the elastic
