The equation or formula for calculating gravitational potential energy is:

GPE = mgh,

where m is the mass in kilograms, g is the acceleration due to gravity (9.8 on earth), and h is the height above the ground in meters.

Gravitational potential energy is energy an object possesses because of its position in a gravitational field. The most common use of gravitational potential energy is for an object near the surface of the earth where the gravitational acceleration can be assumed to be constant at about 9.8 m/s^2.
