E = 30.37 J

Step-by-step explanation:

Given that,

The spring constant of the spring, k = 300 N/m

The spring is stretched by 0.45 m, x = 0.45 m

We need to find the elastic energy stored in the spring. The formula for the elastic energy is given by :

So, the required elastic energy is equal to 30.37 J.
