This is a worksheet that provides students several scenarios in which to calculate Gravitational Potential Energy.
It includes the formulas for Gpe as well as the formula to calculate Weight from Gravity (Earth's). This is intended to help students understand that mass and weight are NOT the same.
Once students have mastered this level of mathematical modeling of Gpe, they can move on to create their own models.
An answer sheet is provided as part of the document.
