# What is the gravitational potential energy of a  29 kg object on a shelf  3 m  high?

Mar 14, 2018

$G P E = 852.6$ J

#### Explanation:

$G P E = m g h$

$m = 29 \setminus \textrm{k g}$
$g = 9.8 \setminus {\textrm{\frac{m}{s}}}^{2}$
$h = 3 \setminus \textrm{m}$

$G P E = \left(29\right) \left(9.8\right) \left(3\right) = 852.6$ J
