# Energy created by falling object

 Admin P: 21,871 This seems like a homework problem from Introductory Physics. However, an object falling implies falling due to gravity. What one has is a conversion/transformation from gravitational potential energy to kinetic energy. Taking the acceleration of gravity to be constant, the change in gravitational potential energy is mg$\Delta h$, where $\Delta h$ is the change in elevation.
