Work done to an elastic object to change its shape is stored as elastic potential energy.

A force applied to an object may cause it to stretch and change in shape.

Any object that goes back to its original shape is an elastic object.

Elastic potential energy then converted to kinetic energy when force removed and object returns to original shape.

The extension e…
