what exactly is gravitational potential energy? is it the potential energy of the force of gravity or the potential energy against the force of gravity?

Expert Answer:

The potential energy is the energy stored in the body at a given position. 
As the force of gravity is a conservative force, the potential energy of a body arising out of this force is systematically called as the gravitational potential energy.
