elastic force

elastic force

[i′las·tik ′fȯrs]
(mechanics)
A force arising from the deformation of a solid body which depends only on the body's instantaneous deformation and not on its previous history, and which is conservative.

To increase the magnitude of elastic force, two strategies have been recommended in the research literature; firstly, reducing the initial length of the elastic device (Page and Ellenbecker, 2003) and secondly, doubling or tripling the number of elastic units (using additional various elastic colour coded bands in parallel (Hodges, 2006; Simoneau et al.
So the rubber band's elastic force is entropic--the stretched polymer is in a very improbable configuration, and snapping back to its resting state restores equilibrium and maximum entropy.
