# Potential Energy

Potential energy, abbreviated as PE, also called gravitational potential energy, is the possessed energy by a body due to its relative position in a gravitational field. As the elevation of the body decreases the less potential energy.

## Formulas that use Potential Energy

\(\large{ PE = m \; g \; h }\) |

### Where:

\(\large{ PE }\) = potential energy

\(\large{ g }\) = gravity

\(\large{ h }\) = height

\(\large{ m }\) = mass
