Gravitational potential energy

  • An object that is held above the ground and has the potentials to fall due to gravity.
  • The amount of gravitational force on an a object depends on its mass and its height above the ground.
  • The following equation is used to calculate the GPE...

GPE= mgh

  • GPE stands for gravitational potential energy, m stands for mass (kg), g stands for gravitational field strength (on Earth- 10N/kg), h stands for vertical height(m)

Energy transfer

  • We experience energy
