# How do you calculate the potential energy of a .1 kg bird sitting on a tree limb 5 meters off the ground?

The gravitational potential energy of the bird is 5 Joules.

Potential energy (PE) = mass (m) × gravitational acceleration (g) × height (h) PE = 0.1 kg × 9.8 m/s² × 5 m PE = 4.9 Joules

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.

- A balanced lever has two weights on it, the first with mass #15 kg # and the second with mass #5 kg#. If the first weight is # 2 m# from the fulcrum, how far is the second weight from the fulcrum?
- A spring with a constant of #12 (kg)/s^2# is lying on the ground with one end attached to a wall. An object with a mass of #7 kg# and speed of #3 m/s# collides with and compresses the spring until it stops moving. How much will the spring compress?
- How much work would it take to push a #2 kg # weight up a # 7 m # plane that is at an incline of # pi / 12 #?
- A ball with a mass of #480 g# is projected vertically by a spring loaded contraption. The spring in the contraption has a spring constant of #24 (kg)/s^2# and was compressed by #8/5 m# when the ball was released. How high will the ball go?
- A spring with a constant of #8 (kg)/s^2# is lying on the ground with one end attached to a wall. An object with a mass of #8 kg# and speed of #3 m/s# collides with and compresses the spring until it stops moving. How much will the spring compress?
