  • question_answer The escape velocity of a body depends upon mass as

    A)  \[{{m}^{0}}\]                          

    B)  \[{{m}^{1}}\]

    C)  \[{{m}^{2}}\]                

    D)         \[{{m}^{3}}\]

    Correct Answer: A

    Solution :

      \[{{v}_{esc}}=\sqrt{2gR}\], where R is radius of the planet. Hence escape velocity is independent of m.
