Flashcards in Forces and Elasticity Deck (6):
Elastic objects store energy as [ ]
Elastic potential energy
What is an elastic object?
An object that can return to its original shape after it has been stretched/changed shape
[ ] to an elastic object to change its shape. The energy is stored as [ ]
Work is done
elastic potential energy
The elastic potential energy is then converted to [ ] when the force is removed and the object [ ]
returns to its original shape
What is the equation for force applied on a string?
F = k*e
k = Spring constant (N/m)
e = extension (m)
