Apex Mass and height have the same effect on gravitational potential energy.

An object's potential energy increases as its height increases. When an object is higher up it has the potential to fall farther thus creating more kinetic energy which means that it has a higher potential energy.

Generally, the higher an object goes, the higher its potential energy will be. This is because higher object will have more energy when it falls.

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

Potential energy refers to the energy stored in an object. An object has potential energy if it has height. An example that gives potential energy to an object is gravity.

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.

Potential energy is the amount of energy stored in an object due to its height. This is maximum for an object which has maximum height and vice versa. So the most potential energy would be for object with greatest 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.

The formula for potential energy is: G.P.E. (gravitational potential energy) = Weight x Height

.potential energy equalls mgh, where m is mass of object, g is gravity, h is height of the object placed from the ground level. . When height increases potential energy also increases..

As height increases, so does 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

the potential energy of an object does not have any relation with the temperature, the height of the object is the main factor effecting the potential energy.

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.

Gravitational potential energy = (weight of the object) x (height) or Potential energy = (mass) x (acceleration of gravity) x (height)

Gravitational potential energy. The formula for gravitational potential energy is weight x height, which is equal to mgh (mass x gravity x height). A+:)

Directly. The greater the potential fall, the greater the potential energy.

Mass, Height, and Gravity Gravitational Potential Energy= Mass * gravity * height

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.
