Gravitational Potential Formula

Refer the below formula to calculate the gravitational potential of energy or work which moves from the fixed object to another location of the object. Gravitational potential formula is derived as -(GxM) / X where G = 6.674 × 10-11 N(m/kg)² , M = Mass and X = Distance. You can easily determine the result using this formula and also refer the below calculator link to know the gravitational potential.


Gravitational Potential = −(G×M(kg)) / x(m)


G = 6.674 × 10-11 N(m/kg)²
M = Mass
x = Distance
