For some reason, this is alluding me at the moment. We know the gravitional acceleration equation is g = GM/r^2, integrate that in respect to r to yield -GM/r(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I thought I could use

?Y = VoT + .5AT^2

and subsitute GM(-1/Ro + 1/R) into A

For some reason this is not working, is my line of reasoning correct?
