## Potential Energy Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Potential Energy = Mass*Acceleration Due to Gravity*Height
PE = Massflight path*g*h
This formula uses 4 Variables
Variables Used
Potential Energy - (Measured in Joule) - Potential Energy is the energy that is stored in an object due to its position relative to some zero position.
Mass - (Measured in Kilogram) - Mass is the quantity of matter in a body regardless of its volume or of any forces acting on it.
Acceleration Due to Gravity - (Measured in Meter per Square Second) - Acceleration Due to Gravity is acceleration gained by an object because of gravitational force.
Height - (Measured in Meter) - Height is the distance between the lowest and highest points of a person/ shape/ object standing upright.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Mass: 35.45 Kilogram --> 35.45 Kilogram No Conversion Required
Acceleration Due to Gravity: 9.8 Meter per Square Second --> 9.8 Meter per Square Second No Conversion Required
Height: 12 Meter --> 12 Meter No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
PE = Massflight path*g*h --> 35.45*9.8*12
Evaluating ... ...
PE = 4168.92
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
4168.92 Joule --> No Conversion Required
4168.92 Joule <-- Potential Energy
