# Potential Energy Calculator

Gravitational Potential energy is the energy possessed by a body by virtue of its position relative to other factors such as stress acting upon it or within itself, gravitational pull, elasticity, electric charge in an electric field, etc. It can be described as 'Stored energy' and is measured in Joules(J). This online Potential Energy calculator will help you to calculate mass, acceleration of gravity, height and gravitational potential energy of any object.

## Calculate Mass, Acceleration of Gravity, Height

Code to add this calci to your website

#### Potential Energy:

PE = m x g x h
#### Mass:

m = PE / (g x h)
#### Acceleration of Gravity:

g = PE / (m x h)
#### Height:

h = PE / (m x g)
**Where,**
m = Mass,
g = Acceleration of Gravity
h = Height
Gravitational Acceleration of the earth is 9.8 m/sec2.
### Example:

Calculate Gravitational Potential energy of an object having mass = 85kg, Height = 20m.

#### Solution:

PE = m x g x h

= 285 × 9.8 × 20

= 16,660J
