The root function for squareroot is \sqrt{n} the radical sign will be placed over n like this:

[tex]\sqrt{2}[/tex]

or

[tex]\sqrt{\frac{2GM}{R}}[/tex]

Never mind... I figured it out.

[tex]vescape = \sqrt{2}*vcircular[/tex]

[tex]vrequired = \sqrt{vescape^2 + vinfinity^2}[/tex]

edit... to change to TEX format. I love these TEX things. Thanks Janus.

I must have been typing while you were posting.Janus said:You would have to accelerate 1 km/sec more.

That was my original guess, but it didn't work. The formula in the above post works though. Thanks, Janus.

BTW... Is your name in reference to Saturn's moon? That's a cool moon as it shares a horseshoe orbit with Epimetheus.
