This allows us to allocate future resource and keep these Physics calculators and educational material free for all to use across the globe. We believe everyone should have free access to Physics educational material, by sharing you help us reach all Physics students and those interested in Physics across the globe.

Calculating the gravitational potential energy possessed by an object of mass m when it is on the surface of a planet of mass M, which has a radius R.

GPE_{0} = *G × M × m**/**R*

Calculating the gravitational potential energy possessed by an object of mass m when it is at height h from the surface of a planet of mass M, which has a radius R.

GPE = *G × M × m**/**R + h*

**Note:** The minus sign is removed from the formulae as in both cases we are interested only in the numerical value of gravitational potential energy.
