Lecture 12
You wish to hurl a projectile from the surface of the Earth (Re= 6.38x106 m) to an altitude of 20x106 m above the surface of the Earth. Ignore rotation of the Earth and air resistance.
a) What initial velocity is required?
b) What velocity would be required in order for the projectile to reach infinitely high? I.e., what is the escape velocity?
c) (skip) How does the escape velocity compare to the velocity required for a low earth orbit?
a) 9,736 m/s
b) 11,181 m/s
c) 7,906 m/s
