Wind Study | Question 18

Wind Study | Potential Energy and Gravity

The technician in the photo below has HUGE potential… potential energy that is!

We know that One Energy’s wind turbines convert wind energy into electrical energy – but what do they have to do with gravitational potential energy? Find out in today’s Wind Study!

This week’s homework asks you to calculate the potential energy of a One Energy technician standing on top of a wind turbine tower, carrying all their tools and safety equipment.

Then, use the same mathematic equation to determine the gravitational potential energy of the turbine tower itself!
