Question

# The minimum speed with which a body is projected from the surface of the earth so that it reaches to the surface of the moon is v while the minimum speed with which a body is projected from the surface of the moon so that it reaches to the surface of the earth is v'. Then, disregarding the spinning and orbital motions of the earth and the moon, and using the fact that MERE>MMRM where ME,MM,RE and RM are mass of earth, mass of moon, radius of earth and radius of the moon respectively, we can say that :

Solution

## The correct option is B v>v′Let the potential of the point where net gravity is zero be -V.Then from the energy conservation, we have,−GMEmRE+12mv2=−GMMmRM+12mv′2=−mV+0AlsoMERE>MMRM.From the above two equations v>v′
