Hi. I've been wondering, how could I calculate the escape velocity for a body of mass m which is a certain distance r from the center of the Earth to escape the entire solar system, assuming the distance from the center of mass (aprox. from the sun because it's about 99% of the mass of the solar system) is R.
I'm familiar with escape velocities and the whole gravitation basics, but I don't know how to grasp this. Could anyone help? Thanks :)
