Potential energy lets us do work in the present to change things in the future. If energy is currency, then potential energy is money in the bank.

An object of mass \(4\text{ kg}\) lies on the ground. If the object is lifted up \(20\text{ m},\) what is the work done by gravity?

Assume that gravitational acceleration is \(g=10\text{ m/s}^2.\)

A block of mass \(m=2\text{ kg}\) initially at rest at the peak of a frictionless inclined plane that makes a \(30^\circ\) angle with the horizontal, slides all the way down the ramp. If the initial height of the block was \(h=50\text{ m},\) what is the total work done on the block by gravity?
