# Two objects have masses of #9 MG# and #5 MG#. How much does the gravitational potential energy between the objects change if the distance between them changes from #24 m# to #48 m#?

The gravitational energy will change by

The potential energy per kilogram at a point in a field is known as the gravitational potential.

The universal constant of gravitation is

G is 6.67 * 10^-11 Nm^2 kg^-2.

Consequently,

Thus,
