Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Avery on Wednesday, March 24, 2010 at 12:05am.

A non-rotating spherical planet with no atmosphere has a mass M and radius R. A particle is fired off from the surface with a speed equal to 3/4 the escape speed. Calculate the farthest distance it reaches (measured from the center of the planet) if it is fired tangentially. I know how solve it if fired radially, but I don't know how to do it if the particle is fired tangentially.
