1. What is Gravitional Potential Energy ?(GPE)

  • The amount of gravity that the Earth could potentailly have on an object due to it's height and a different gravitational field strength to that of Earth.
  • GPE is the energy that an object has due to it's vertical position in the gravitational field.
  • The Gravity of the Earth (10N)
  • The Potential of Gravity anywhere it can change.
