Potential energy

Different types of fuels store energy for doing work. This stored or hidden energy is called potential energy(P.E.)

  • If a spring or rubber is stretched the spring will have potential energy. This is called elastic potential energy(or strain energy).
  • If a load is raised above the ground, it will have gravitational P.E .

 

Gravitational potential energy can be calculated using the formula

Gravitational P.E= mass X gravitational field streght X height

P.E = m X g X h

Gravitational potential energy is energy an object possesses because of its position in a gravitational field.
