A student lifts a 1.2 kg bag from her desk, which is 0.59 m high, to a locker that is 2.9 m high. What is the gravitational potential energy of the bag relative to the desk? PE=mgh 1.2(9.80)(2.9) = 34.1

PE=mgh =(1.2)(9.8)(2.9-.59) = 27.17J

A student lifts a 4.7-kg box from the her desk, which is 0.9-m high, to a locker that is 4.1-m high. What is the bags energy relative to the desk?
