What are the benefits and dangers of Elastic energy?
A danger from Elastic energy is that if you stretch a band to much, you can cause it to break, or make it fly in the air. a benefit is that if we didn't have Elastic energy, we wouldn't be able to stretch a muscle in our body!
How is Elastic energy formed?
ELastic energy is formed when potential mechanical energy is stored in the configuration of a material as work is performed to distort its shape.
Is Elastic energy renewable or non-renewable?
Elastic energy is renewable because a rubber band, which is an example of Elastic energy, can be stretched many times.
What are some examples of Elastic energy?
Some examples of Elastic energy is a rubber band stretching, balloons growing larger, springs pulled and released, and catapults launching.
The power of elastic energy!
Interesting facts about Elastic energy
1. One of the main materials which is capable of producing Elastic energy includes rubber.
2. The definition of Elastic energy is potential mechanical energy stored in an objects, which is being stretched.
3. The formula to determine the force of Elastic energy is f=k x e.
4. Some examples of Elastic energy return to their normal shape once released and they stop producing Elastic energy.
5. On the third fun fact, F= the force measured in newtons , K=the elastic band constant in newtons per minute , and E= the length of the stretched band in meters .
