Potential Energy of a Fluid at an Elevation

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Electromagnetics

A fluid at a higher elevation will have more energy than the same fluid at a lower elevation. Potential energy is normally expressed per mass unit.

formula

\( E_z =z   g \;\)

Where:

\(E_z\) = energy elevation

\(z\) = elevation

\(g\) = gravity
