.In classical mechanics, the gravitational potential at a location is equal to the work (energy transferred) per unit mass that is done by the force of gravity to move an object to a fixed reference location. It is analogous to the electric potential with mass playing the role of charge[

g= G a^{2} b^{2} / r^{2}

where r is the distance between a and b
