Two meteoroids are 2.4×105 from Earth's center and moving at 2.1 . One is headed straight for Earth, while the other is on a path that will come within 8500 of Earth's center.Find the speed of the second meteoroid at its closest approach to Earth.

Expert's answer

*6,67259·10*

G=

G=

^{−11}M=2,4 × 105

R=8500

v=sqrt(6,67259·10

^{−11 ×}2,4 × 105/8500)=sqrt(0.2* 10

^{−11)v=1.41E-6}
