Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Kaitlyn on Thursday, September 29, 2011 at 10:11pm.

How fast does a rocket need to be going to break free of Earth's gravity? How fast would it have to be going in order to completely leave the solar system? (For the second part of this problem, assume that the Sun is the only mass in the solar system and that the rocket is beginning its journey from Earth's orbit?)
