Potential Energy Tutorial
 Potential Energy:      Potential energy is the stored energy of position possessed by an object. Potential Energy Formula : Potential Energy: PE = m x g x h Mass: Acceleration of Gravity: Height: where, PE = Potential Energy, m = Mass of object, g = Acceleration of Gravity, h = Height of object, Potential Energy Example: Case 1: A cat had climbed at the top of the tree. The Tree is 20 meters high and the cat weighs 6kg. How much potential energy does the cat have?  m = 6 kg, h = 20 m, g = 9.8 m/s2(Gravitational Acceleration of the earth)   Step 1: Substitute the values in the below potential energy formula:             Potential Energy: PE = m x g x h             = 6 x 9.8 x 20             Potential Energy: PE = 1176 Joules This example will guide you to calculate the potential energy manually. Case 2: On a 3m ledge, a rock is laying at the potential energy of 120 J. What will be the mass of the rock.  PE = 120 J, h = 3m, g = 9.8 m/s2(Gravitational Acceleration of the earth)   Step 1: Substitute the values in the below Velocity formula: This example will guide you to calculate the mass of the object manually.
