We have 2 different formulas for escape velocity.
and
. If we look at the first formula we see that escape velocity is inversely proportional to the square root of Radius of Earth. While in the second formula, escape velocity is directly proportional to the square root of Radius of Earth.

We know that escape velocity depends on the Radius of Earth. Which one will show its proper dependence? Is it directly proportional or inversely proportional?
