A meteorite of mass m= 1 104 kg is approaching head-on a planet of mass M= 3 1029 kg and radius R= 7 104 km. Assume that the meteorite is initially at a very large distance from the planet where it has a speed v0= 2 102 km/s. Take G= 6.67 10−11.

Determine the speed of the meteorite v (in m/s) just before it hits the surface of the planet. (The planet has no atmosphere, so we can neglect all friction before impact)

v=
