 Work Done Against Gravity
Work Done Against Gravity
Added by Craig Napier on Dec 15, 2008
This activity teaches that the work done against gravity to lift a ball is converted to gravitational potential energy, which is calculated using the formula E_{p} = mgh. This is studied through a simulation of a ball falling from different heights.
This item teaches:
 the definition of work
 the equation: work done = force x distance
 the gravitational potential equation: Ep = mgh
 about gravitational potential
Contents
Objectives
 Pupils should be able to perform calculations using the formula E_{p} = mgh.
