  • physics - ,

    Energy dictates that some of the KE will go to increasing gravitational PE.

    initial KE=finalKE+(GMe/re-GMe/infinity)
    initialKE=finalKe+GMe/re

    solve for final Ke, then final velocity

  • physics - ,

    is Me the mass of the earth?
    and re the radius of the earth?
