Question

# Which object has less gravitational potential energy when both have the same mass?

- 3m
- 6m
- Both have equal potential energies
- Both have zero potential energies

Hint:

### The gravitational potential energy of two objects that have the same height will be equal.

## The correct answer is: Both have equal potential energies

- The height of the object is directly proportional to the gravitational potential energy.
- The increase or decrease in the height of the object alters the gravitational potential energy.
- When two objects are held at the same height, the GPE in both will be the same.
