Solve Potential Energy

  1. Nov 11, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    how do you solve potential energy when no height was given? Do I just do gravity times the mass to get it?



    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    Please show us the problem. We cannot figure out what to do unless we have some context.
    Also, mass times gravity is a force, in Newtons, not work or energy, in Joules.
