An object of mass 1 kg has a potential energy of 1 joule relative to the ground when it is at a height of :
A. 0.102 m

B. 1 m

C. 9.8 m

D. 32 m

Answer :

Given,

Mass m= 1 kg


Potential energy = 1 J


Height h=?


Let g = 9.8 ms-2


We know


Potential energy = m × g × h


Substituting the values in this formula


1 J = 1 kg× 9.8 ms-2 × h


h =


h = 0.102 m
