DrRocket Posted June 5, 2011 Share Posted June 5, 2011 I hope this is the correct place to post this: How is gravitational potential energy stored?, because all the other energy I know about is kinetic (like an electron that moves faster has more energy than other that is slower) or in form of mass (E=mc^2). But I don't see any of them doing something there. Off of topic, my native language isn't English so tell me if you don't understand what I'm trying to say. The usual explanation is that, as for electromagnetic energy, it is stored in the field. There is a problem when trying to carry this over to general relativity. Conservation of energy in general relativity is both subtle and problematic. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
