The energy P (arbitrary units) stored in the spring is given by P(x) = 2x^2, where x is the distance in inches that the end of the spring is stretched from its equilibrium position. Find P(4). a. 4 units b. 16 units c. 8 units d. 32 unitsFound 2 solutions by stanbon, checkley71:Answer by stanbon(57424)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!P(x) = 2x^2 P(4)=2(4^2)=32 Cheers, Stan H. Answer by checkley71(8403)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!P(X)=2X^2 OR P(4)=2*4^2 OR P(4)=2*16 OR P(4)=32 UNITS.
