Best Answer

On the earth, because the force he is climbing against is higher, therefore he is doing more work in climbing, and accumulating more potential energy.

Q: Who has more potential energy someone climbing a ladder on the Moon or on the Earth?

A person climbing a ladder is using mechanical energy, if you are talking about types of energy.

If you are standing anywhere where you could fall you have gravitational potential energy. i.e. If you are in a ladder you have potential energy. Irvine ladder breaks and you fall this potential energy is converted to kinetic energy.

The energy needed for a woman to climb a ladder is given by the change in potential energy she experiences. Defining the ground as being zero potential energy, her overall change in potential energy isEp = mghwhere Ep is the change potential energy, m is her mass, g is the gravitational acceleration (9.8m/s2 on earth) and h is the height she climbs.Ep = (90kg)(9.8m/s2)(6m) = 5292kg*m2/s2 or 5292 Joules

The person will use the energy of his muscles to do that. This energy comes from the food eaten by people.

is climbing eg He is climbing the corporate ladder

no, its an action verb. climbing a TALL ladder, tall would be the adjective, climbing is the action verb

not sure

The ladder is set at a steeper angle
