Gravitational Potential Energy is due to height
GRAVITATIONAL POTENTIAL ENERGY = mass x g x height
Measured in JOULES (J)
Is the energy that an object has because of its gravitational field.
When an object is raised, work is done against the force of gravity and the object gains gravitational potential energy
ON EARTH THE GRAVITATIONAL FIELD STRENGTH (g) IS APPROX. 10 N/kg
