# Gravitational Potential Energy Calculator, Formula, Gravitational Potential Energy Calculation

## Gravitational Potential Energy Calculator:

Enter the values of Gravitational Constant G(9.81m/s2), Mass of the Object1 M(kg), Mass of the Object2 m(kg) & Radius between the Two Objects r(m)  to determine the value of Gravitational Potential Energy U(J).

 Enter Mass of the Object1: kg Enter Mass of the Object2: kg Enter Radius between the Two Objects: m Result – Gravitational Potential Energy: J

## Gravitational Potential Energy Formula:

The Gravitational Potential Energy U(J) in Joules is Equal to the Gravitational Constant G(9.81m/s2) in meter per second square and is Multiply the Mass of the Object1 M(kg) in kilogram and again Multiply the Mass of the Object2 m(kg) in kilogram and then Divided by the Radius between the Two Objects r(m) in meter.

The Equation of Gravitational Potential Energy can be written as,

U(J) = – G(9.81m/s2) * M(kg) * m(kg) / r(m)

Here,

U(J) = Gravitational Potential Energy in Joules

G(9.81m/s2) = Gravitational Constant in meter per second square

M(kg) = Mass of the Object1 in kilogram

m(kg) = Mass of the Object2 in kilogram

r(m) = Radius between the Two Objects in meter

### Gravitational Potential Energy Calculation:

1) Calculate the Gravitational Potential Energy and given for the Mass of the Object1 = 10kg & Mass of the Object2 = 8kg &  Radius = 7m.

U = -G * M * m / r

U = -9.81 * 10 * 8 / 7

U = 112.11J.

2) Calculate the Radius and given for the Mass of the Object1 = 10kg & Mass of the Object2 = 8kg & Gravitational Potential Energy = 112.11J.
