A vehicle of 50quintal climbs up a hill of 10m. The potential energy gained by it is (take g=10m/s2).


Open in App
Solution

Step 1: Given information

Mass, m=50quintal

=50×100=5000kg

Height, h=10m

Acceleration due to gravity, g=10m/s2

Step 2: To find

We have to find the potential energy gained by the vehicle.

Step 3: Calculation

We know the formula,

Potential energy, P=mgh

By substituting the values, we get

=5000×10×10=5×105J

Therefore, the gained potential energy is 5×105J.
