Calculate the escape velocity from a red giant's atmosphere. Assume that the stars mass is 1 M and its radius is 100 R. How does this compare with the speed at which a planetary nebula shell is ejected?
I already calculate the escape velocity and got 1.34 x 10^-12 I dont know how to go about the second portion of this question.
Thanks for taking the time to help me!
you can find escape velocity as from v^2/r = GM/r^2
v = sqrt(GM/r) So for red giant we have v = sqrt ( 6.67*10^(-11)*1.99*10^(30) / (100*7*10^(8)) ) = 6*10^(4) m/s For planetary nebula we assume mass to be approximately 1M and radius to be approximately 10^(15) m. So v = sqrt(6.67*10^(-11)*1.99*10^(30)/(10^(15) ) = 3.3 * 10^2 m/s
