Gravitational Potential Energy calculations

Stage 1

Calculate the energy transferred to the gravitational potential store for the following:

1. A 80 kg cyclist cycles up a 10 m hill.

2. A ball thrown up 4 m with a mass of 0.9 kg.

3. A 13 kg object lifted 4.9 m.

4. A 19 kg mass is moved up 50 m.

5. A lift travels 15 m up with a mass of 2000 kg.

Stage 2

6. Find the mass of a cyclist who after cycling up a 13 m hill has 11466 J in their gravitational potential energy store.

7. Find the height a 1.6 kg ball is thrown after gaining 62.72 J of energy in its gravitational potential store.

8. Find the height a lift moves up by which has 539000 J of energy in its gravitational potential store and a mass of 1000 kg.

9. Find the height a 110 kg cyclist climbs up, when they have 20482 J in their gravitational potential energy store.

10. Find the height a box is moved up by if it has 5390 J of energy in its gravitational potential store and a mass of 22 kg.
