That is called gravitational 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.

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

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

The gravitational potential energy is equal to: GPE = mass x gravity x height Or equivalently: GPE = weight x height

Weight and height. The potential energy of an object is its weight times its height. The potential energy is turned into kinetic energy as the object is dropped. Potential energy is weight times height, kinetic energy is one half mass times velocity-squared. Mgh = &frac12; M V^2 To reach a speed of 10 m/s this equation can be solved to show that the object must be dropped through a height of 5.1 metres.

When an object is lifted to a certain height, the mechanical energy of the person or system lifting the object gets transferred into the potential energy of the object. Thus if an object of mass/weight 'm' is lifted to a height 'h', then the potential energy possed by the object at height 'h' is given as: Potential Energy (P.E)= m*g*h, where g is acceleration due to gravity and whose value is 9.8 m/s2.

You calculate the potential energy as: weight x height. This is equal to mass x gravity x height.

Gravitational potential energy is the product of weight and height. It is often calculated as mgh = mass x gravity x height. (Mass x gravity, by itself, is the weight.)

If you are talking about Gravitational Potential Energy then this is the formula: ~GPE = wh ~Gravitational Potential Energy = weight of an object multiplied by the height of an object. ~ w = weight ~ h = height ~The SI unit for GPE, or any other energy related problem, is joules or a capital J.

Potential Energy is calculated by the product of the mass of the object ( not weight! ), the gravitational acceleration ( 9.81 m/s/s ) and the height of the object above a datum. mass x 9.81 x height

The two factors that influence the gravitational potential energy of an object include its weight and height. The joule is the SI unit used for measuring work and energy.

potential energy dependent upon an objects weight and height

Potential energy that is dependent on height is called gravitational potential energy. Potential energy is energy of position. ex: A book on a shelf has gravitational potential energy. Formula: G.P.E.=Weight x Height

PEgravitational = mass * gravity * height. Mass * gravity = weight Therefore the two factors are weight and height.

Weight and height. PE = mgh (mass x gravity x height); you might also say weight x height, since the weight = mass x gravity.

Gravitational potential energy=mgh Where: -m=mass (not weight) of the object -g=gravity (or the rate at which an object will accelerate in free-fall) -h=height (usually in meters, but depends on what height units are in your "g" value)

Dropping a weight from a height. It loses potential energy and gains kinetic energy

On earth, mass and height. PE = mgh Weight and height. (note that m*g, as above, equals weight). This therefore applies not just on Earth.

Increase in potential energy = weight x increase in height

There is less gravity on the Moon. Gravitational potential energy can be calculated by multiplying weight x height, or the equivalent mass x gravity x height.
