I have several confusions regarding escape velocity. I am sure I am missing something(s) obvious or maybe I am taught wrong. Lets say we throw an object of any mass at exactly escape velocity of ...
There is a crater of depth $R/100$ on the surface of the moon (radius $R$). A projectile is fired vertically upward from the crater with a velocity, which is equal to the escape velocity from the ...
When launched from a planet with mass M and radius R, what initial velocity is necessary for an object to travel a distance r before it gravitates back towards the planet? Sort of like trying to find ...
We know the escape velocity from the Earth is 11.2km/s. Isn't it the velocity required to escape from earth if we go normal to the surface of earth? i.e while we derive the formula for the escape ...
