Unformatted text preview: stored energy (relative to what we had initially). Specifically, U = 1 2 (3200 N/m)(0.020 m) 2 1.44 J = 0.80 J. (b) The elastic stored energy for  x = 0.020 m, does not depend on whether this represents a stretch or a compression. The answer is the same as in part (a), U = 0.80 J....
