potential energy formula & equation
Mass :Acceleration of Gravity :
g = PE/m*h
Height :
h = PE/m*g
Potential Energy :
PE = m x g x h
Where,
m = Mass,
g = Acceleration of Gravity
h = Height.
Gravitational Acceleration of the earth is 9.8 m/sec2.
Example:
Calculate the potential energy for the given details.
Mass (m) = 10 kg
Acceleration of Gravity (g) = 2 m/s^{2}
Height (h) = 20 m
Solution:
Apply Formula:
PE = m x g x h
PE = 10*2*20
PE = 400 Joule
Potential Energy (PE) = 400 J
