A projectile is fired from the earth in the direction of the earth’s motion around
the sun. what minimum speed must the projectile have relative to the earth to escape the
SOLAR SYSTEM? Ignore the earth’s rotation.
escape velocity = sqt[(2G x mass of sun) / earth's distance from sun, 1 AU]
The Attempt at a Solution
is the solution that simple? or did I miss some concepts? I think only the sun's gravitation is considered...
