How to Calculate Gravitational potential of a thin circular disc?
Gravitational potential of a thin circular disc calculator uses Gravitational Potential=-(2*[G.]*Mass*(sqrt((Distance from center to a point)^2+(radius)^2)-Distance from center to a point))/(radius)^2 to calculate the Gravitational Potential, Gravitational Potential of a thin circular disc at a point in the gravitational field of a body is defined as the amount of work done by an external agent in bringing a body of unit mass from infinity to that point by keeping no change in kinetic energy. Gravitational Potential and is denoted by V symbol.
How to calculate Gravitational potential of a thin circular disc using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Gravitational potential of a thin circular disc, enter Mass (m), radius (R) and Distance from center to a point (a) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Gravitational potential of a thin circular disc calculation can be explained with given input values -> -4.282E-9 = -(2*[G.]*35.45*(sqrt((0.1)^2+(1)^2)-0.1))/(1)^2.
