A girl of mass 35 kg climbs up from the first floor of a building at a height 4 m above the ground to the third floor at a height 12 m above the ground. What will be the increase in her gravitational potential energy?


Gravitational potential energy at 1 st floor = mgh1  

                                                      equals space 35 space cross times space 10 space cross times space 4

equals space 1400 space straight J
Potential energy at 3rd floor = mgh2
 
                                                equals space 35 space cross times space 10 space cross times space 12 space equals space 4200 space straight J

Increase in Potential Energy,

= 4200 – 1400

= 2800 J
