Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Go 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

shivam_bhalla

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3LOL, 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3from 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.
