# Use the information and data in Exercise 5.4.33 to find the work required to propel a 1000-kg space vehicle out of the earth’s gravitational field.

To determine

To find:

The work required to propel a 1000kg space vehicle out of earth’s gravitational field.

Explanation

Given:

G=6.67300×1011

Mass of earth M=5.972×1024

R=6378.1KM.

Formula used:

From exercise 5.4.33 the work done to move a body from a to b when another is fixed is given by

abGm1m2r2dr=Gm1m2[1a1b]

Here the fixed object is earth. The object to be moved out of earth’s gravitational field has mass 1000 Kg. Moving out of gravitational field of earth would mean being infinitely far away from earth. The object is initially on the surface of earth
