Question

# Gravitational potential energy of an object of mass m at a height h from the surface of the earth, where h is small compared to radius of earth is .mghGMm/hGMg

Solution

## The correct option is A mghWhen h is small compared to the radius R of the earth, we assume g  (acceleration due to gravity) to be constant and  therefore, the gravitational potential energy is given by mgh.
