# Gravitational Potential Energy Calculator

The potential energy calculator helps you calculate the potential energy from mass, gravitational acceleration, and height.

Enter mass in kg, gravitational acceleration in g, and height in meters to calculate the potential energy in joules.

In case you don’t know, a body’s position determines an object’s potential energy. Gravitational potential energy is the product of the object’s mass (m), gravity’s acceleration (g), and its height (h) above ground (the body).

PEg = mgh

PEg = Gravitational potential energy

m = Mass of an object

g = Acceleration due to gravity

h = Height of the object

You might be interested in determining the speed of the surface or Newton’s force.
