## lynjunlew 2 years ago A 0.0100-kilogram grape hangs from a vine 1.50 meters from the ground. What is the potential energy of the grape?

1. ajprincess

Potential energy=mgh m-mass g-gravitational acceleration h-height Does that help? @lynjunlew

2. lynjunlew

umm, the mass is 0.0100kg, the height is 1.50 meters, how do i find gravitational acceleration?

3. ajprincess

g=9.8ms^-2 sometimes it is taken 10ms^-2 for easiness of calculation

4. ajprincess

In this case I thnk u have to use 9.8ms^-2

5. lynjunlew

so its : $0.0100\times9.8^{-2}\times1.50$ ?

6. ajprincess

nope it is 0.0100*9.8*1.50

7. lynjunlew

oh, ok. thank you so much!
