Calculating Escape Velocity
Determine the missing values for each different body (1 Newton=0.22 lb, 1 lb =4.54 N). Values should be carried out to 2 decimal places when it is not a whole number.
Use the following applet to calculate the escape velocity. Do not use commas when putting numbers into this applet.
See attached file for solution.
This solution provides step by step equations for finding escape velocity.
