When you lift an object, the energy transferred to the object is called gravitational potential energy.

Yes. The energy of lifting is added to the object as potential energy. If the lifted object is then released, it will fall, and the potential energy will become kinetic energy.

Chemical energy (originally form the Sun) in your muscles is used to impart potential energy to the object you have lifted.

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.

Potential (gravitational) energy is transformed into kinetic energy. So, for instance, if you lift an object, you're storing energy which will act on the object once you let it go (increasing velocity).

If we use a inclined plane to lift a object then the amount of energy used decreases applied force and wok

It reduces the rate of work needed to lift a load or an object.The total energy should be the same, inclined plane or direct lift of that object.

Yes. It is easier to push an object up a plane than lift it straight up. It does not reduce the total amount of energy needed to lift it up.

Lifting an object to a greater height requires more energy, but not any more force, thanlifting it to a not-as-great height.

The height is irrelevant. The energy required depends on the height; the force does not. The weight of an object, and therefore the force required to lift it, is mass x gravity - about 500 Newtons.The height is irrelevant. The energy required depends on the height; the force does not.

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.

Generally yes, but it really depends on the specific situation. -- If the work is done to lift the object, then the object's potential energy is increased. -- If the work is done to accelerate the object, then the object's kinetic energy is increased. -- If the work is done to move the object against friction, then the energy supplied is dissipated, and the object's energy may or may not change, depending on whether or not it is somewhat heated by the dissipation.

It requires energy to lift an object against the force of gravity, and this energy can be recovered (for example, converted to movement) if the object goes back down, so it makes sense to think that the energy went somewhere.

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.

If the object is placed at height, it has potential energy and when this object falls down, this potential energy is converted to kinetic (kinesis means movement) energy. If we have to lift object at height , we have to spend energy, witch is released during fall of the object. Example is when water comes down in hydroelectric power station potential energy is converted into kinetic energy. Witch is used to rotate wheel, creating electricity.

Yes. The potential energy of an object is E=mgh where m=mass, g=acceleration of gravity (9.8 m/s^2) and h is the height of an object above a reference point. So, if two objects (on the same planet) have the same mass, the one that is higher will have the larger potential energy. Another way to think of this is that in lifting an object higher you do work on that object. That work is converted into it's potential energy. Whenever you do work you change the energy of the object.

It is produced by converting some other type of energy into potential energy. For example, it takes an effort to lift an object up (against the force of gravitation) or to compress a spring.

The gravitational potential energy doesn't actually reside in a single object, but in the relationship between two objects. Thus, there is a gravitational potential energy between Earth and Moon, or between a rock that you lift up on the Moon, and the Moon.The gravitational potential energy doesn't actually reside in a single object, but in the relationship between two objects.

That depends on how strong you are and how heavy the object is.

Yes. a wedge can be used to lift an object. A wedge is a triangular shaped tool and can be used to separate two objects or portions of an object, lift an object, or hold an object in place. It functions by converting a force applied to its blunt end into forces perpendicular (normal) to its inclined surfaces.

A climber at altitude has potential energy due to efforts to lift him higher in gravity's grip. His elevation gives him the potential to create kinetic energy if he had the misfortune to fall off.

Kinetic, potential, gravitational potential.Kinetic energy is the energy of motion that an object has. Objects moving in straight lines possess translational kinetic energy, which we often abbreviate as Ek.The translational kinetic energy of an object is given by:Kinetic energy = (1/2)mv2Potential EnergyIf you lift an object you have to do work on it. This means that energy is transferred to the object. But where is this energy? This energy is stored in the object and is called potential energy. The reason it is called potential energy is because if we let go of the object it would move.Gravitational Potential EnergyAs we have mentioned, when lifting an object it gains gravitational potential energy. One is free to define any level as corresponding to zero gravitational potential energy. Objects above this level then possess positive potential energy, while those below it have negative potential energy. To avoid negative numbers in a problem, always choose the lowest level as the zero potential mark. The change in gravitational potential energy of an object is given by:GPE = mgh

Potential energy is energy done to place something somewhere, against a force (not any force, it must be a so-called "conservative force", but I am only mentioning this for completeness sake). Specifically, gravitational potential energy is the energy an object has when it is raised above ground level. You need to supply energy (as work) to lift it up; in theory, this energy can be recovered if the object falls down.
