Question details
Zero, a hypothetical planet, has a mass of 4.3 x 10^{23} kg, a radius of 3.2 x 10^{6} m, and no atmosphere. A 10 kg space probe is to be launched vertically from its surface. (a) If the probe is launched with an initial kinetic energy of 5.0 x 10^{7} J, what will be its kinetic energy when it is 4.0 x 10^{6} m from the center of Zero? (b) If the probe is to achieve a maximum distance of 8.0 x 10^{6} m from the center of Zero, with what initial kinetic energy must it be launched from the surface of Zero?
