Gravitational Potential Energy Calculator

In Physics, Gravitational potential energy is the energy an object possesses because of its position in a gravitational field. The most common use of the energy is for an object near the surface of the Earth. Given here is an online physics calculator to calculate for the gravitational potential energy given the values of mass and distance. Enter the required values and the calculator tool will automatically update you with the results.

Joule

Example:

Calculate gravitational potential energy given that, mass = 150kg and distance = 15m.

Solution:

Gravitational Potential Energy = −(G×M) / x
= −(9.8 × 150) / 15
= -6.674e-10 Joule.
