Question

A bucket full of water is on the first floor of your house and another identical bucket with same quantity of water is kept on the second floor. Which of the two has greater potential energy ?

Solution

As ‘g’ is constant in both cases and quantity of water (m) is same in both cases potential energy depends on height. Since height of second bucket kept at second floor is greater. Hence, second bucket at second floor has greater P.E.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
