A scallop forces open its shell with an elastic material called abductin, whose elastic modulus is about 2.0 x 106 N/m2. If this piece of abductin is 3.0 mm thick and has a cross-sectional area of .5 cm2, how much potential energy does it store when compressed 1.0 mm?
I have no idea how to solve for the potential energy when compressed. How would i do this?
