Solution - A Rocket is Fired ‘Vertically’ from the Surface of Mars with a Speed of 2 Km S–1. If 20% of Its Initial Energy is Lost Due to Martian Atmospheric Resistance, How Far Will the Rocket Go from the Surface of Mars before Returning to It? Mass of Mars = 6.4× 1023 Kg; Radius of Mars = 3395 Km - Gravitational Potential Energy

Question

A rocket is fired ‘vertically’ from the surface of mars with a speed of 2 km s–1. If 20% of its initial energy is lost due to Martian atmospheric resistance, how far will the rocket go from the surface of mars before returning to it? Mass of mars = 6.4× 1023 kg; radius of mars = 3395 km; G = 6.67× 10-11 N m2 kg–2.
