# If acceleration due to gravity is 10m/s^{2}, what will be the potential energy of a body of mass 1kg kept at a height of 5m?

Answer :

The potential energy of a body is calculated by using the formula:

Potential Energy = m x g x h

Mass, m = 1kg

Acceleration due to gravity, g = 10m/s

Height, h = 5m

So, putting these values in the above formula, we get:

Potential Energy = 1 x 10 x 5 = 50J

Thus, the potential energy of the body is 50 joules.

Potential Energy = m x g x h

Mass, m = 1kg

Acceleration due to gravity, g = 10m/s

^{2}Height, h = 5m

So, putting these values in the above formula, we get:

Potential Energy = 1 x 10 x 5 = 50J

Thus, the potential energy of the body is 50 joules.
