Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Kristin on Saturday, April 28, 2012 at 6:24pm.

If a projectile is launched from Earth with a speed equal to the escape speed, how high above the Earth's surface is it when its speed is three-fifths the escape speed?

I keep getting the answer 2.56x10^6 m after solving it a few different ways. Help would be great.
