#### Question

State two factors on which the potential energy of a body at a certain height above the ground depends.

#### Solution

Potential energy = mgh

∴ P.E. = m × h × g ‘

g’ is constant depends upon m and h

Two factors on which P.E. depends :

(i) Mass : greater the mass, greater is P.E.

(ii) HEIGHT ABOVE THE GROUND : Higher the height of body, greater is the P.E.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
