Describing an elastic band

It may seem a bit of a mouthful in class to talk about:

Teacher: The elastic store of energy associated with the rubber band.

However, it would be perfectly acceptable to refer to:

Teacher: The elastic store of the rubber band.

… or to hold up the rubber band and say:

Teacher: Here we have a rubber band, an elastic store.
