A meteorite of mass 1*10^4kg is approaching head-on a planet of mass 5*10^29kg and radius 5*10^4km. Assume that the meteorite is initially at a very large distance from the planet where it has a speed 3*10^2km/s. Take 6.67*10^-11.

Determine the speed of the meteorite (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)
