What is the formula for elastic force?

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.
