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 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)
- We experience energy…
