# A Satellite is Orbiting the Earth Close to Its Surface. a Particle is to Be Projected from the Satellite to Just Escape from the Earth. the Escape Speed from the Earth - Physics

MCQ

A satellite is orbiting the earth close to its surface. A particle is to be projected from the satellite to just escape from the earth. The escape speed from the earth is ve. Its speed with respect to the satellite

#### Options

• will be less than $\nu_e$

• will be more than $\nu_e$

• will be equal to $\nu_e$

• will depend on the direction of projection.

#### Solution

will depend on the direction of projection.

For example a body projected vertically requires less escape velocity than a body projected at an angle with the vertical.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
