1 newton of gas

138 magnify
Mass gain has been highly ignored over the years, we can turn a substance into a gas by heating it. (doh)  but if we lift the substance 1 meter before we vaporise it.....  . ... ..what happens to the gravitational potential?

How are the kilometers of gravitational potential released? The earth radius is 6 378.15 km, that's 60 million joule from 1 newton of gas.

Poof gone? Energy vaporised!
Here is an interesting lecture about nukes, it has little to do with above or maybe not. You be the judge.
