Elastic potential energy calculator - formula & step by step calculation to find the potential mechanical energy stored in a form of material which release the energy when it compressed and stretched or deformed (like spring). U = 1/2 (K x x2). Spring constant K in N/m & spring stretch distance x in meter are the key terms of this calculation.

Formula

In mechanical engineering, the below mathematical formula is used to calculate the elastic potential mechanical energy stored in a compressed material.
