Textbook Problem

Calculate the elastic potential energy of a spring with spring constant k = 225 N/m that is (a) compressed and (b) stretched by 1.00 × 10−2 m.

(a)

To determine
The elastic potential energy of a spring after compression.

Explanation

Given Info:

The spring constant is 225N/m .

Spring is compressed by 1.00×102m .

Formula to calculate the elastic potential energy is,

PEs=12(kx2)

  • k is the spring constant
  • x is the displacement from equilibrium

After the compression of spring, the displacement is 1.00×102m .

Substitute 1

(b)

To determine
The elastic potential energy of a spring after stretching.
