The escape speed from a distant planet is 33 km/s. If the acceleration of gravity on the planet surface is 15.5 m/s2, what is the radius of the planet?

Step 1

Given: The escape speed, v = 33 km/s = 33000 m/s

The acceleration of gravity = 15.5 m/s2

Find: The radius of the planet

Step 2

The escape speed from the planet is given as;

M = mass of the body

R = radius of the body

G = gravitational constant

Step 3

The acceleration of gravity...
