[SOLVED] Gravitation & Escape Speed - Stone leaving Earth and reached the Moon. Hello everyone, I have one question on gravitation and escape speed. In the earlier part of the question, the minimum speed for the stone to leave the Earth is calculated and its final destination is the Moon. In the next part, the question asks if the stone will hit the Moon with a speed greater than or smaller than the minimum speed calculated in the previous part. Can anyone help me with the above question by providing a suitable explanation as well? Many thanks in advance.
