Question

A projectile launched vertically from the surface of the Moon rises to an altitude of 465 km.

Part A What was the projectile's initial speed?

Answer #1

Given is:-

The altitude of the projectile or

Now,

we know that the gravitational acceleration constant of moon is

Using third equation of motion we get

by taking upward direction positive and plugging the values we get

(Note: - we know that at highest point the velocity will be zero)

which gives us the initial speed of the procjectile

or

A projectile launched vertically from the surface of the Moon
rises to an altitude of 335 km.
What was the projectile's initial speed?

A projectile is launched vertically from the surface of the Moon
with an initial speed of 1360 m/s. At what altitude is the
projectile's speed two-thirds its initial value?

A projectile is launched vertically from the surface of the Moon
with an initial speed of 1100 m/s. At what altitude is the
projectile's speed one-fourth its initial value?

A projectile is launched vertically from the surface of the Moon
with an initial speed of 1230 m/s. At what altitude is the
projectile's speed three-fifths its initial value?

A projectile is launched vertically from the surface of the Moon
with an initial speed of 1410 m/s. At what altitude is the
projectile's speed one-half its initial value?

A projectile is launched vertically from the surface of the
earth with an initial speed ?0=6.23 km/s. The mass of the earth is
5.97×1024 kg, the radius of the earth is 6.37×106 m, and
?=6.674×10−11.
(a) What is the magnitude of the projectile's acceleration
1.63e3 km above the surface of the earth?
(b) At what height will the projectile stop and begin to fall
back to the surface of the earth?

A projectile is launched vertically from the Earth's surface
with an initial speed of 10 km/sec. Neglecting atmospheric drag,
how far above the Earth's surface would it go? (Radius of earth =
6380 km)

A rocket is launched vertically upward from Earth's surface at a
speed of 5.0 km/s .
What is its maximum altitude? in meters using two significant
figures

What is the launch speed of a projectile that rises vertically
above the Earth to an altitude equal to 10 REarth before
coming to rest momentarily?

What is the launch speed of a projectile that rises vertically
above the Earth to an altitude equal to 6 REarthREarth before
coming to rest momentarily?
