Problem 8 Calculate the numerical value o the ratio v moon /v esc where v esc is the usual escape velocity, i.e. velocity required to escape to innity, whereas v is the minimum speed needed at the surace o the earth in order to reach the surace o the moon. ( Keep in mind that once the object is close enough to the moon, the moons gravitational pull will take over.) 1...
