The diagram above show s the force-extension curve of a piece of wire. The energy stored when the wire is stretched from E to F is

Answer Details

Energy store is equal to the work done in stretching the wire from E to F given by the area of the shaded trapezium under the graph. = 1/2(0.1 x 0.2) x (0.1 - 0.05) = 1/2(0.3) x 0.05 = 0.15 x 0.05 = 0.075 = 7.5 x 10-1J
