Neglect the gravity of the Moon, neglect atmospheric friction, and neglect
the rotational velocity of the Earth in the following problem. A
long time ago, Jules Verne, in his book From Earth to the Moon (1865),
suggested sending an expedition to the Moon by means of a projectile
fired from a gigantic gun.
(a) With what muzzle speed must a projectile be fired vertically from a
