Elastic Potential Energy

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Fastener

Elastic potential energy, abbreviated as PE, is the energy stored in objects as the result of deformation, such as a spring when stretching or compressing.


Elastic Potential Energy formula

\(\large{ PE = \frac {1}{2}\; k_s\; x^2 }\)   


\(\large{ PE }\) = elastic potential energy

\(\large{ x }\) = length or displacement

\(\large{ k_s }\) = spring constant
