Forces and Elasticity

  • When you apply a force to an object you may cause it to stretch and change in shape.
  • Any object that can go back to its original shape after the force has been removed is an elastic object.
  • Work is done to an esltic object to change its shape. This energy is not lost but stored as elestic potential energy.
  • The elastic potential energy is then converted to kinetic energy when the force is removed and the object returns to its original shape.
