# What is Dimensional Formula of Potential Energy?

Posted in Dimensional Formulae | Email This Post |Potential energy can be defined as the energy possessed by the body by virtue of its configuration or position.

Mathematically,

Potential energy (PE) = Mass(M) X Gravitational acceleration (g) X Altitude (h).

Dimensional formula of Mass = M^{1}L^{0}T^{0}

Dimensional formula of gravitational acceleration= M^{0}L^{1}T^{-2}

Dimensional formula of altitude= M^{0}L^{1}T^{0}

Putting this value in the above equation we get,

**Dimensional Formula of Potential energy= M ^{1}L^{2}T^{-2}.**

SI unit of Potential energy is Joule (J).

it is d best i have ever seen….very helpful for homework’s.

really it is so much helpful

very helpful for projects

it is very helpful with my assignments

it is very helpful

i got my confusion cleared thanks for all your help A Z FORMULA
