a large drill is used to make a hole through rocks in the earths surface to excavate for oil
what’s the equation that links change in gradational potential energy store , mass , gravitational field strength ,height


  1. Answer:

    \Delta GPE = mg\Delta h


    The gravitational potential energy of an object is the energy possessed by the object due to its location in the gravitational field.

    This energy is always measured as a difference with respect a “zero level” – generally taken as the ground level.

    Therefore, it generally makes more sense to measure the change in gravitational potential energy of an object when its height is changed; this is given by:

    \Delta GPE = mg\Delta h


    m is the mass of the object

    g=9.8 m/s^2 is the acceleration due to gravity

    \Delta h is the change in height of the object
