Gravitational potential and potential energy

A shell of mass M and radius R has a point mass m placed at a distance r from its centre. The gravitational potential energy U (r) vs r will be


Gravitational P.E. = m × gravitational potential 

U = mV  So the graph of U will be same as that of V for a spherical shell.
