No. Gravity is a force. Potential energy turns into kinetic (moving) energy when you fall due to gravity.

Is gravity an energy?

No, but there is energy related to gravity (gravitational potential energy).


What is energy from gravity?

gravitational potential energy arises from the law of gravity


Is gravity a form of energy?

Energy is involved, but the gravity between two objects is a force, not an energy.


What is gravity kinetic energy?

There is no "gravity kinetic energy". There is gravitational energy (a type of potential energy), and - separately - there is kinetic energy (the energy of movement).


Is gravity potential or kinetic energy?

Gravity is a force more so than an energy


Is gravity a mechanical energy?

Gravity is not energy. It's just something that causes forces.


Is gravity a living thing?

i guess not but the mass and energy in the earth makes gravity. I guess... the energy and mass in the earth makes gravity.


How is gravity related to physics and astronomy?

Because physics is about matter and energy, gravity is included into that as it is energy.


What equation can you use to calculate gravitational potential energy?

Potential energy = mgh, or mass x gravity x height.Potential energy = mgh, or mass x gravity x height.Potential energy = mgh, or mass x gravity x height.Potential energy = mgh, or mass x gravity x height.


What is the difference between force of gravity and gravity?

By Gravity we mean the energy of Gravity E= - mGM/r = -mu/r. Force is the first derivative of energy so the force of Gravity is dE/dr = mu/r^2. Force is the first derivative for all kinds of energy.


When gravity is pulling on something does the something have kinetic energy?

The object can be stationary and have gravity pulling on it ergo no kinetic energy


What is the formula of gravity potential energy?

PE = mgh (potential energy = mass x gravity x height).


Does energy exist without gravity?

Of course,energy forms like Light,sound do not have any connection with gravity.



What is potintial?

Potential energy is energy that is stored within an object, and this energy may do work. Gravity is what gives the potential energy to any object, and is a result of gravity pulling down


What is the term for motion determined by gravity?

The term for motion determined by gravity is mcV. This term is the vector energy determined by gravity. The motion energy involves the vector velocity V. The scalar value of the vector is SQRT(GM/r), determined by gravity. The total energy determined by gravity is quaternion energy, consisting of the real Potential Energy (-mu/r) and the vector energy (mcV): E= -GmM/r + mcV = -mu/r + mcV


What does gravitational potential energy depend on of the object?

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


What form of energy is used when skiing down a slope?

Potential energy is the energy of gravity.


Where does the energy from an earthquake come from?

The energy is due to the force of Earth's gravity.



A 2 kg mass has 40 J of potential energy with respect to the ground Approximately how far is it located above the ground?

Use the formula PE = mgh (potential energy = mass x gravity x height), using 9.8 for gravity.Use the formula PE = mgh (potential energy = mass x gravity x height), using 9.8 for gravity.Use the formula PE = mgh (potential energy = mass x gravity x height), using 9.8 for gravity.Use the formula PE = mgh (potential energy = mass x gravity x height), using 9.8 for gravity.



How does gravity change water potential energy?

As gravity pulls water down a slope, the water's potential energy changes to kinetic energy that can do work. I hope this helped :D


How magnatism electricity gravity is in earth?

Your question is ambiguous. Are you asking why gravity exists or is gravity or more to the point can Gravity/Magnetism be used as an energy source.


What is the relationship between kinetic energy and height?

Kinetic energy is energy in motion. Gravity pull on the object putting it in motion, the higher up an object is the harder it will fall due to gravity. Kinetic energy= energy in motion Height=more energy.
