Any object that is in a raised position has gravitational potential energy.Any object that is in a raised position has gravitational potential energy.Any object that is in a raised position has gravitational potential energy.Any object that is in a raised position has gravitational potential energy.

Gravitational potential energy is the potential energy an object has due to its position in a gravitational field. The higher an object is the greater its gravitational potential. When it falls the gravitational potential becomes kinetic energy. Energy stored in height differences ~APEX

There are different types of energy. You can increase the gravitational potential energy by raising the object. You can increase its thermal energy by heating it up.

Well gravitational potential energy is potential energy that depends on the height of an object so an object would have gravitational potential energy when ever it's of the ground or at a high height (it doesn't have to be very high) for example if you lift up a ball it has the potential to fall or if your climbing a mountain you have gravitational potential energy.

One can move the object in the negative direction of a gravitational force to increase its gravitational potential energy.If the object is elastic, you can deform the object under tension or compression (stress) to increase its elastic potential energy.If the object holds a magnetic charge you can increase its electrodynamic potential energy by subjecting it to a stronger magnetic field.If the object holds a static charge, one can increase the amount of charged electric particles (static) to increase electrostatic potential energy, also known as electric potential.One can heat an object to increase its thermal potential energy.One can slow an object down to increase it's rest mass energy (also potential)One can introduce charged leptons or down-type quarks into an atom, which by emitting W and Z bosons can increase the weak forces, which will increase nuclear potential forces of an atom (bit of a stretch)

Gravitational potential energy depends on the weight of the object and the height that the object is located at. Gravitational potential energy is the product of an objects weight and height.

Potential energy that depends on height is called gravitational potential. The higher the altitude of an object, the more gravitational potential the object has.

We can increase the potential energy of an object by applying more energy on it

Does speed 'effect' the gravitational potential energy of an object? No, but gravitational potential energy can be converted into kinetic energy - so the gravitational potential energy can effect the speed. Ep = mgh Energy Potential = mass * 9.81 (gravity) * height Speed / Velocity is absent from that equation.

When they're both at the same height, the heavier object has more gravitational potential energy.

That refers to gravitational potential energy - energy related to a gravitational field. If you lift an object up, its gravitational potential energy increases; if it falls back down, its gravitational potential energy decreases.

Gravitational energy is the potential energy associated with gravitational force. If an object falls from one point to another point inside a gravitational field, the force of gravity will do positive work on the object, and the gravitational potential energy will decrease by the same amount.

You are changing the object's gravitational potential energy. Gravitational potential energy is the energy due to position of the object above the Earth. This energy has the potential to be transformed into Kinetic Energy if the object falls.

When an object falls down, its gravitational potential energy will be converted to kinetic energy.

No. Gravitational force is the pull an object experience from gravity. Gravitational energy is the energy an object has from its position in a gravitational field. An object moving up in a gravitational field gains gravitational energy.

The free fall of the object in gravitational field changes its gravitational potential energy to kinetic energy

PE=mgh So the 2 factors that effect gravitational potential energy are: -Mass of the object. -The height of the object.
