# 1. Determine the escape velocity from the Sun for an object (a) at the Suns surface (r = 7.0 X 10 5

1. Determine the escape velocity from the

Sun for an object (a) at the Suns surface (r = 7.0 X 105km, M = 2.0

X 1030kg), and (b) at the average distance of the Earth (1.50 X 108km).

Compare to the speed of the Earth in its orbit.

2. Show that the escape velocity for any

satellite in a circular orbit is times its velocity.
