## Potential Energy Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
potential_energy = Mass*Acceleration Due To Gravity*Height
PE = m*g*h
This formula uses 3 Variables
Variables Used
Mass - Mass is the quantity of matter in a body regardless of its volume or of any forces acting on it. (Measured in Kilogram)
Acceleration Due To Gravity - The Acceleration Due To Gravity is acceleration gained by an object because of gravitational force. (Measured in Meter per Square Second)
Height - Height is the distance between the lowest and highest points of a person standing upright. (Measured in Meter)
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 = m*g*h --> 35.45*9.8*12
Evaluating ... ...
PE = 4168.92
