Forces and Elasticity

HideShow resource information
  • When you apply a force to an object it  may stretch and change shape
  • Elastic object --> it returns back to its original shape after the force has been removed
  • Work is done to an elastic object to change its shape. The energy is not lost- it is stored as elastic potential energy
  • The elastic potential energy is converted to kinetic energy when the force is removed and the object returns
