How do you measure potential energy in a rubber band?

I am doing the Rubber Bands For Energy science project. How do you measure potential energy in a stretched rubber band?

Hi lololololololololololololololol,

The potential energy of a stretched rubber band can be calculated by the equation 1/2 kx^2, where k is the spring constant and x is displacement.

Hope this helps,
