Definitions:

Potential Energy:
Potential energy is the energy an entity stores or possesses. Energy is defined as the ability or capacity to perform work. For example, a ball lifted in the air, increases its potential energy as its elevation is increased.
The SI unit of potential energy is the joule.
Mass:
The quantity of matter in an object is known as mass. Potential energy is directly proportional to mass.
The kilogram is the SI unit of mass.
Gravity:
Gravity is the rate of position change for an object. Potential energy is proportional to gravity.
The gravity on earth is approximately 9.81 meters per second.
Height:
Height is the elevation or altitude of the object. As height is increased potential energy is increased.
