Tension is stored in a piece of rope or wood from a winch. When the tension is suddenly released it hurls the object. Check out http://science.howstuffworks.com
They cover all the basic principles and will even sell you plans on how to build one if you like.

1. Conservation of energy
2. Conservation of angular momentum
