Question

# As the height of a body decreases, gravitational potential energy ______.

- Increases
- Decreases
- Remains the same
- Varies exponentially

Hint:

### The gravitational potential energy decreases when the height of the body decrease.

## The correct answer is: Decreases

- The GPE is equal to the mass, gravity, and height of the body.
- The GPE is directly proportional to the height of the body.
- The gravitational potential energy decreases as the height decrease.

### A roller coaster is at the top of a 72 m hill and weighs 966 N. What is its gravitational potential energy?

The energy that an object has or acquires when its position changes due to being in a gravitational field are known as gravitational potential energy. Gravitational potential energy can be defined as energy that has a connection to gravitational force or gravity.

Gravitational potential is the effort required to move a unit test mass from infinity into the source mass's gravitational field. Both are held above the table, with one at the table. We can now state that the pencil that is higher than the table will have more gravitational potential energy.

¶The formula for Gravitational Potential Energy

⇒ GPE = m⋅g⋅h

where

m represents the mass in kilograms.

Gravitational acceleration, or g (9.8 on Earth)

The measurement of h above the ground is in meters.
