## About Strain Energy Calculator (Formula)

The Strain Energy Calculator is used to determine the strain energy (Es) stored in a deformable material when a force is applied to it and it undergoes compression or deformation. The formula for calculating strain energy in the context of linear deformation (such as compression) is:

**Strain Energy (Es) = (F * C^2) / (2 * k)**

Where:

**Es**represents the Strain Energy, measured in joules (J).**F**is the applied force, measured in newtons (N).**C**is the deformation or compression, measured in meters (m).**k**is the material’s stiffness or spring constant, measured in newtons per meter (N/m).

This formula is based on Hooke’s Law, which describes the relationship between the force applied to a spring-like material and the resulting deformation. In this context, **k** represents the stiffness of the material, and **C** represents the compression of the material from its original state.

To use this formula, you need to know the applied force (F), the amount of compression (C), and the stiffness of the material (k). The Strain Energy (Es) provides valuable information in various engineering and physics applications, such as in the analysis of mechanical systems, materials testing, and structural engineering, where it helps determine the potential energy stored in a deformed object.
