A wire suspended vertically from one of Its ends is stretched by attaching a weight of N to the Lower End. The weight stretches the wire by mm. Then the elastic energy stored in the wire is ?
Step 1: Given parameters
Force, F = N.
Stretching of wire, x = mm.
Step 2: Formula used
Elastic energy where F is the force and x is the extension produced.
Step 3: Calculating the elastic energy stored in the wire.
By substituting the given values, we get
Therefore, the elastic energy will be .
