Textbook Problem

Elastic potential energy depends on the spring constant and the distance the spring is stretched or compressed. By what factor does the elastic potential energy change if the spring’s stretch is (a) doubled or (b) tripled?

(a)

To determine
The factor by which the elastic potential energy change if the spring stretch is doubled.

Explanation

Given Info:

The spring is stretched to its double.

The elastic potential energy is equal to the negative of the work done by the spring.

PEs=12kx2 (I)

  • k is the spring constant
  • x is the displacement with which the spring is c

(b)

To determine
The factor by which the elastic potential energy change if the spring’s stretch is tripled.
