Steps for Potential Energy Calculator

Back to Top
Step 1 :  

Potential energy is the energy stored within a physical system as a result of the position or configuration of the different parts of that system.



Step 2 :  

Formula:


Potential energy = m*g*h.


Unit is Joule.

  1. A body of mass 4 kg is raised to a height of 39 m,the acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s2. Calculate the potential energy possessed by the body.


    Step 1 :  

    Formula:


    Potential energy = mgh.


    Where m= 4kg , g=9.8 m/s2 , h= 39m.



    Step 2 :  

    Pulg the values in the above equation.


    Potential energy = 4*9.8*39.



    Answer  :  

    P.E = 1528.800 Joule



  2. A body of mass 8 kg is raised to a height of 24 m,the acceleration of gravity is 3.2 m/s2. Calculate the potential energy possessed by the body.


    Step 1 :  

    Formula:


    Potential energy = mgh.


    Where m= 8kg , g=3.2 m/s2 , h= 24m.



    Step 2 :  

    Pulg the values in the above equation.


    Potential energy = 8*3.2*24.



    Answer  :  

    P.E = 614.400 Joule
