(a) What is the escape speed on a spherical asteroid whose radius is 435 km and whose gravitational acceleration at the surface is 0.632 m/s2? (b) How far (in km) from the surface will a particle go if it leaves the asteroid's surface with a radial speed of 535 m/s? (c) With what speed will an object hit the asteroid if it is dropped from 2160 km above the surface?
