water is more elastic because the change in volume is less in case of water.So it has greater restoring force.

plz give me thumbs up........

Air is more compressible than water . Further , volume elasticity is reciprocal of compressibility . Therefore , wateris more elastic than air.

air has most elasticity because it is spread out to infinite extent but water has a limited easticity
hope u got ur answer :) :)

Air is more elastic than water.Try to compress a balloon filled with water and then one filled with air. You can observe that air can be expanded more so it is more elastic.....
