What is Potential Energy? - Definition, Formula, Examples
Potential energy is the energy held by an object because of its position relative to other objects, stresses within itself, its electric charge, or other factors. Similarly, in the case of a spring, when it is displaced from its equilibrium position, it gains some amount of energy which we observe in the form of stress we feel in our hand upon stretching it.
