buddhi lagao. Energy concept. the potential barrier has to be crossed. apply shivam's equation above.

So M_o cancels and as @apoorvk said, buddhi lagao :P

lol.. anyways i need a theoretical ans if u guys see the formulae there is a presence of mass isntd ?? which show it dependent on mass right?

bhalla u free?? mje isme se ek bhi derivation ni ati frnkly sayin i m so dumb plz help me if u have time tell me how we do derivation :?

Sorry not *free exactly but if you want help in any specific derivation, then I can help you

actaully in 11 my teacher dosent teach v.well thi topic i mean conservation of laws dats y i m facing problems.. :(
 one year ago

shivam_bhallaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
Go through the basics of work , gravitational force, kinetic energy, linear momentum, angular momentum, Then for any derivation,you have to apply only these 2 or 3 laws conservation of 1) Energy 2)linear momentum 3)Angular momentum If you have any doubt, you can post a question here and tag me. I will try t help you with that derivation

am asking why the angle is independ of the escape velocity?
 one year ago

shivam_bhallaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
LOL, Ofcourse @swalah , put an angle of projection will increase your escape velocity and escape velocity is the "minimum" velocity required to escape the gravity of earth

thanks then what is the angle of that minimum velocity? @shivam_bhalla

Ofcourse, 90 degrees

you assume space is spherical yeah?

shivam_bhallaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
The gravitational force of the the earth acts spherically as a function of r.

from behalf of @Mani_Jha It doesn't matter whether you throw a bus or a ball into space. Both of them need the same speed 11.6 km/sec to do that(escape velocity of earth). A possible reason of that is that the gravitational field(g) is same for all objects on earth. All objects are in the same field(gravitational) and so require the same velocity to escape the earth. Also, whatever the object be, it has to travel the same distance from the ground to space. Although, it is more difficult to give a bus a speed of 11.6 km/sec than to a ball. Whether you throw it vertically upwards or at an angle, it doesn't matter for the speed. This is because, as shivam_bhalla said, the earth is spherically symmetrical(roughly). Look above at the sky. There is space everywhere at the same distance from you. So, from wherever you throw it, if it has a speed of 11.6 km/sec, it will reach space. , as I think that @shivam_bhalla might have been mistaken.
