Answer:Potential energy, P = 500 J

Explanation:We have,

Weight of the box, W = 50 N

Height of the stairs, h = 10 m

It is required to find the potential energy gained by the box. The potential energy is possessed by an object due to its height. The formula of potential energy is given by :

g is acceleration due to gravity

So, the potential energy of 500 J is gained by the box.
