• ### What is the formula for potential energy of a spring?

• The formula is as follows: Gravitational Potential Energy = mgh where m is the mass, g is the acceleration due to gravity (9.8 m/s2) and h is the height above Earth surface. The formula for elastic potential energy of a spring with a constant k is as follows:

• ### What is the formula for gravitational potential energy?

• Gravitational potential energy is a function of the position of the object in a gravitational field, force of gravity at that point and mass of the object. The formula is as follows: where m is the mass, g is the acceleration due to gravity (9.8 m/s 2) and h is the height above Earth surface.
