# How can you increase gravitational potential energy between yourself and earth?

The force of attraction or the gravitational force between two objects is the product of the two masses divided by the distance between the two objects squared, all multiplied by the gravitational constant.

F = the force of attraction between two masses

G = gravitational constant

m1, m2 = the two masses

d = the distance between the two masses

F = G times m1 times m2 divided by d squared

or

F = G * m1 *m2 / d2

The gravitational attraction between two objects increases with the mass of the two objects and decreases by the distance between them squared. Wiki User

The direction of the gravitational forces between me and the Earth is along the line
between the center of the Earth and the center of me. There are two forces, one
in each direction along that line, and they're equal.

The strength of the force between the two bodies depends on the product of the
two masses. The strength of the force between you and the earth is exactly the
same in both directions. Your weight on the earth is exactly equal to the earth's
weight on you. The sum of the forces on you and the earth is exactly double the
force on either one.
Try this: Take your bathroom scale, turn it over, put the top side down to the
floor, and step up onto the bottom side. Now you're weighing the earth in your
"gravitational field". If you can rig some way to read the scale while it's in that
position, we're betting it'll read exactly the same as it does when you weigh
yourself with the scale right-side-up.   Wiki User

gravitational force W ( N ) = m ( mass in kg ) * g ( grativational accelerity = 9.806 m/s2)   Wiki User

Increase your mass in some way. I'd probably use chocolate. Alternatively, get to a higher point.   Wiki User

That is also known as the object's weight.   Wiki User
