The image above represents the Gravitational potential.

To compute the gravitational potential of a field, two essential parameters are needed which are mass (m) and radius (r).

The formula for calculating the gravitational potential;

V = ^{(Gm)} / _{r}

Where;

V = Gravitational potential

m = Mass

r = Radius

Let’s solve an example;

Find the gravitational potential of a field when the mass is 14 cm with a radius of 9 cm.

This implies that;

m = Mass = 14 cm

r = Radius = 9 cm

V = ^{(Gm)} / _{r}

V = ^{(6.67 x 10-11 x 14)} / _{9}

V = ^{1.0375e-10} / _{9}

V = 1.0375e-10

Therefore, the **gravitational potential** isĀ **1.0375e-10 Volts (V).**
