An object with a mass of 5kg is raised to 100m above the ground and has 500 J of gravitational potential energy. What will happen to the gravitational potential energy if the mass was increased to 16.3kg? Calculate the change in GPE where the gravitational field strength is 1 N/kg.
An object with a mass of 5kg is 100m above the ground and has 35 J of gravitational potential energy. What will happen to the gravitational potential energy if the mass was increased to 10kg?CorrectIncorrect
What is the Equation for Gravitational Potential Energy (GPE)?
The formula for gravitational potential energy is GPE = m x g x Δh.
GPE = Gravitational potential energy
m = Mass
g = Gravitational field strength
Δh = change in vertical height
