**Elastic**potential energy is equal to the

**force**times the distance of movement.

**Elastic**potential energy =

**force**x distance of displacement. Because the

**force**is = spring constant x displacement, then the

**Elastic**potential energy = spring constant x displacement squared.

Just so, what is a elastic force?

Something that is **elastic** can return to its original shape after being stretched or compressed. This property is called **elasticity**. As you stretch or compress an **elastic** material like a bungee cord, it resists the change in shape. It exerts a counter **force** in the opposite direction. This **force** is called **elastic force**.

Beside above, how do u calculate force? The formula for **force** says **force** is equal to mass (m) multiplied by acceleration (a). If you have any two of the three variables, you can solve for the third. **Force** is measured in Newtons (N), mass in kilograms (kg), and acceleration in meters per second squared ( m/s2 ).

Likewise, people ask, what is an example of elastic force?

An **example of elastic force** is bungee jumping. The **elastic** cord creates resistance and imposes a **force** when the cord is stretched far enough. The farther the **elastic** is stretched, the more **force** it exerts to return back to its original shape.

What are two types of elastic forces?

Matter is **elastic** if it returns to its original shape after it is squeezed or stretched; There are **two types of elastic forces**- compression and tension.
