The magnitude of potential energy per unit mass of object at surface of earth is E. then the escape velocity of the object is

\[(a)\;\sqrt {2E} \quad (b)\;\sqrt {4E^2} \quad (c)\;\sqrt E \quad (d)\;\sqrt {E/2} \]

1 Answer

Potential energy per unit mass $=E$
Total potetial energy $=mE$
Which is equal to binding energy
Hence :
$v_e=\sqrt {2E}$
