A 72.0 kg piece of a satellite left over from an explosion with zero orbital velocity in space falls from a distance of 190 above the surface of the earth down toward earth. It arrives with 29.5 Km (M="mega") kinetic energy on earth. How many MJ energy have been lost due to friction in the earth's atmosphere ? Use the exact expression for the gravitational potential energy.
