Elastic energy is the potential energy stored in a material or physical system as the volume or shape is distorted. When objects are stretched or compressed, elastic energy is stored, according to the Physics Classroom. More »

Elastic potential energy is the energy stored from an elastic object being stretched or compressed. It equals the amount of work that was done to stretch the object. The equation for elastic potential energy is PE=1/2kx2... More »
