# Two Bodies a and B of Equal Masses Are Kept at Heights of H and 2h Respectively. What Will Be the Ratio of Their Potential Energies? - Science

Short Note
Sum

Two bodies A and B of equal masses are kept at heights of h and 2h respectively. What will be the ratio of their potential energies?

#### Solution

Potential energy of a body is directly proportional to the height of the object.
Hence , "Potential energy of A"/"Potential energy of B" = 1/2

Ratio of A and B = 1:2

Is there an error in this question or solution?
