    Answer: 7840N

    Explanation:

    Given that

    Potential energy = ?

    Mass of sled = 20-kg

    Distance = 40 meters

    Acceleration due to gravity = 9.8m/s^2

    Recall that potential energy is the energy possessed by a body at rest

    i.e potential energy = mass m x acceleration due to gravity g x distance h

    P.E = mgh

    P.E = 20kg x 9.8m/s^2 x 40m

    P.E = 7840N

    Thus, the potential energy of the sled is 7840N

    the above answer is correct however gravitational potential energy is measured in joules. So the final answer would be 7840 J (joules) not newton’s.
