# Potential Energy Tutorial

## Potential Energy Tutorial

#### Potential Energy:

Potential energy is the stored energy of position possessed by an 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/s^{2}(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/s^{2}(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.

This tutorial will help you dynamically to find the Potential Energy problems.
