What is the difference between gravitational potential energy and elastic potential energy? Give one example of a body having gravitational potential energy and another having elastic potential energy.
Energy of a body due to its position above the ground is called the gravitational potential energy whereas energy of a body due to a change in its shape and size is called elastic potential energy.
Elastic property of the body is responsible for this energy. Elastic potential energy is associated with the state of compression or extension of an object.
For example, a wound –up circular spring possess elastic potential energy which drives a wound-up toy.
