What is gravitational potential energy?

Energy stored when an object gains height

Ep grav

What is the symbol for gravitation potential energy?

Gravitational potential energy → Kinetic energy

What energy change occurs when an object loses height (falls)?

What three things is gravitational potential energy dependent on?

Mass, strength of gravity and the change in height

How is gravitational potential energy calculated?

By multiplying mass, the strength of gravity and the change in height

What is the equation for gravitational potential energy?

ΔEp grav = m × g × Δh

Δ is the Greek letter 'delta' which means 'change in'

In the equation 'ΔEp grav = m × g × Δh', what does 'Δ' represent?

gravitational potential energy

an icicle hanging from a rooftop

Change in gravitational potential energy

In the equation 'ΔEp grav = m × g × Δh', what does 'ΔEp grav' represent?

mass

a body of coherent matter, usually of indefinite shape and often of considerable size

the strength of gravity

In the equation 'ΔEp grav = m × g × Δh', what does 'g' represent?

height

displacement in the y-axis; dy

change in height

In the equation 'ΔEp grav = m × g × Δh', what does 'Δh' represent?

ΔEp grav = Fw/F grav × Δh

Since mass × gravity is equal to weight force, what is another way the equation can be written?

Joules (J)

Heat units

Fw = ΔEp grav ÷ Δh

What is the equation to calculate the weight force from the gravitational potential energy and the change in height?

Δh = ΔEp grav ÷ Fw

What is the equation to calculate the change in height from the gravitational potential energy and the weight force?
