The following diagram gives the formula for gravitational potential energy. Scroll down the page for more examples and solutions on how to use the formula.
Gravitational potential energy is the energy stored in an object due to its position above the Earth’s surface.
This is due to the force of gravity acting on an object. Gravitational potential energy is
calculated as follows:
Ep = m × g × h
