Spring Potential Energy

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Fastener

spring potential energy 1Spring potential energy, abbreviated as U, is the stored energy as a result of the objects elastic deformation.

 

Spring Potential Energy formula

\(\large{ PE_s = \frac {1}{2} \;  k_s \; l_s^2    }\)   

Where:

\(\large{ PE_s }\) = spring potential energy

\(\large{ k_s }\) = spring force constant

\(\large{ l_s }\) = spring stretch length
