## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello,

I am new here so I hope this is posted correctly.

If you assume a perfectly round earth (with uniform density etc.), is the potential energy of an object = 0 there?

I assumed the object was just a small sphere of concentrated mass with no dimensions or whatever makes it simple.

Thanks in advance
