Elasticity, an interesting physics principle

Elasticity is the property of solid materials to return to their original shape and size after the forces deforming them have been removed.

It is an interesting property as many materials display it and it can be applied to create shape-memory polymers which can find many biological applications. Read more about such materials here!
