    strain energy=stress*strain*voloume/2
    bcz strain=stress/E
    so =stress^2 *voloume/2E
    now voloume for bar = AL
    now = stress^2*AL/2E

    - Strain energy is defined as the energy stored by a system which undergoes deformation under the application of load.

    - Strain energy stored in a uniform bar is given as (σ2 AL/ 2E)

    here, σ is the stress, E is the Young's modulus, AL is the volume
