Interpreting Graphs – Energy


1.  Based on this graph, how much energy does the object have when it is sitting on top of a 2 m shelf? ______
2.  How much energy does it have when it is sitting at a height of 14 m? _________
3.  If the object has 1000 J of energy, how far from the ground is it? _________
4.  At 20 meters, how much energy is stored in the object? _______
5.  Add to the Graph …………………. PE  = mgh    ( g ravity = 9.8 m/s2)

Create a line showing the potential energy of an object that weighs 12 kg.   Complete the chart below and then add your data to the graph.

Height (choose 5 points between 0 and 25) Calculate Potential Energy
