# A slingshot consists of a light leather cup containing a stone. The cup is pulled back against two parallel rubber bands. It takes a force of 15.0 N to stretch either one of these bands 1.00 cm. (a) What is the potential energy stored in the two bands together when a 50.0- g stone is placed in the cup and pulled back 0.200 m from the equilibrium position? (b) With what speed does the stone leave the slingshot?
