The Gravitational Potential Energy Calculator is provided in support of our Physics Tutorials on Work, Energy and Motion which explores Motion, the different types of energy, kinetic energy, gravitational potential energy, elastic potential energy. power and efficiency with practical working examples and formula. A list of the supporting Work and Energy Physics Tutorials is available at the bottom of this page. This calculator will calculate:
|Initial Gravitational Potential Energy of the Object (GPE) J|
|Mechanical Energy of the Object (ME) J|
|Final Velocity Just Before Touching the Ground (v) m/s|
|Velocity at a Given Height (v(h)) m/s|
Please note that the formula for each calculation along with detailed calculations is shown further below this page. As you enter the specific factors of each gravitational potential energy calcualtion, the Gravitational Potential Energy Calculator will automatically calculate the results and update the formula elements with each element of the force calculation. You can then email or print this gravitational potential energy calculation as required for later use.
