Best Answer

A string is a series of either strikes or spares in a row. In order for it to be a string, there must be more that three in the game. Given that there are only ten frames, a string will add substantially to your score because of the additive nature of the scoring.

For instance, three spares will add much higher than three open frames because one spare will add the next count of pins in the next frame. A strike will add two counts of pins, so a string will make a cumulative score. This is how 300 is a perfect game.

Why does A stretched elastic or stretched string each have potential energy?

Think of a bowling ball sitting on a shelf. The ball itself is no different from a bowling ball sitting on the floor, but one of them contains enough potential energy to break the bones in your foot if you drop it. The energy that is converted when you stretch the elastic or string from its relaxed state is called potential energy by analogy, even though there's really no potential field equivalent to gravity.
