Elastic Strain Energy = (1/2)kx^2 where k is the spring constant and x is the extension

to work out the extension do 0.12m.*110N/m= 13.2 N

now we have our variables put them into the formula
(1/2) * 110Nm^-1 * (0.12)^2m^2 = 0.792J while it is a form of energy so the units are obviously Joules we can work it out that they are Joules our units in the equation are Nm^-1 * m^2 which simplifies to Nm which using the formula Work = Force * Distance and given Work has unit Joules then Newtons*Metres = Joules
