At which point is the potential energy maximum?
Similarly one may ask, at what point is the kinetic energy at a maximum?
At an object's maximum height, kinetic energy is zero/ maximum while the potential energy is zero/ maximum. 3. At an object's lowest point, kinetic energy is zero/ maximum while potential energy is zero / maximum.
Additionally, where is the gravitational potential energy maximum? gravitational potential energy is maximum at the ground level/surface of earth.
Hereof, what is the maximum value of potential energy?
it can be used to describe the potential energy in a system of point charges (or radially symmetric spheres) as a function of their separation distance r, then the maximum value is zero at infinite separation. Hence, its maximum value is zero at infinity.
What is the maximum value of potential energy that can be possessed by a heavenly body?
Gravitational potential energy U is V*m, that means it also depends on the mass of the orbiting body. So earth's potential energy is much greater than the potential energy of a comet far beyond the orbit of Neptune. The Gravitational PE is maximum at infinity and comically this maximum is a zero.
