on earth, the gravitational field strength is 10 n/kg. calculate the gravitational potential energy for a 4 kg bowling ball that is being held 2 m above the ground.

**on earth, the gravitational field strength is 10 n/kg. calculate the gravitational potential energy for a 4 kg bowling ball that is being held 2 m above the ground.**

**Answer:** You can calculate the gravitational potential energy (GPE) using the formula:

Gravitational Potential Energy (GPE) = Mass (m) × Gravitational Field Strength (g) × Height (h)

Given:

- Mass (m) = 4 kg
- Gravitational Field Strength (g) on Earth ≈ 10 N/kg
- Height (h) = 2 m

Using the formula:

GPE = 4 kg × 10 N/kg × 2 m

GPE = **80 joules** (J)

So, the gravitational potential energy for a 4 kg bowling ball held 2 meters above the ground on Earth is 80 joules.
