What is the escape velocity of a rocket?

What is the escape velocity of a rocket launched from position A, the center of the three planet system depicted in the figure. Each planet has mass M, radius R, and the distance between the center of any planet and position A is r.

A ball is thrown…

1. A ball is thrown downward from a 40 m high building with a speed of 10 m/s. What is the vertical component of the velocity when it hits the ground? (Use gravity g = 10 m/s²)

2. A ball is thrown downward from a 40 m high building with a speed of 10 m/s. What is the horizontal component of the velocity when it hits the ground? (Use gravity g = 10 m/s²)

3. A ball is thrown downward from a 40 m high building with a speed of 10 m/s. What is the speed of the ball when it hits the ground? (Use gravity g = 10 m/s²)

4. A ball is thrown upward from a 40 m high building with a speed of 10 m/s. What is the vertical component of the velocity when it hits the ground? (Use gravity g = 10 m/s²)

5. A ball is thrown upward from a 40 m high building with a speed of 10 m/s. What is the horizontal component of the velocity when it hits the ground? (Use gravity g = 10 m/s²)

6. A ball is thrown upward from a 40 m high building with a speed of 10 m/s. What is the speed of the ball when it hits the ground? (Use gravity g = 10 m/s²)

7. A ball is thrown horizontally from a 45 m high building with a speed of 10 m/s. What is the horizontal component of the velocity when it hits the ground? (Use gravity g = 10 m/s²)

8. A ball is thrown horizontally from a 45 m high building with a speed of 10 m/s. What is the vertical component of the velocity when it hits the ground? (Use gravity g = 10 m/s²)

9. A ball is thrown horizontally from a 45 m high building with a speed of 40 m/s. What is the speed of the ball when it hits the ground? (Use gravity g = 10 m/s²)

10. A ball is thrown horizontally from a 45 m high building with a speed of 10 m/s. This building located on an aliens' planet with the gravity acceleration of 20 m/s². What is the horizontal component of the ball velocity when the ball hits the ground?

11. A ball is thrown downward from a window of a 40 m high building with a speed of 10 m/s. What is the speed of the ball when it hits the ground? (Use gravity g = 10 m/s²)

12. A ball is thrown from the roof of a 40 m high building with a speed of 10 m/s. What is the speed of the ball when it hits the ground? (Use gravity g = 10 m/s²)

13. A ball is thrown from the roof of a X1 m high building with a speed of X2 m/s at an angle of X3 degree with respect to the horizontal. What is the velocity of the ball when it hits the ground? (Use gravity g = 10 m/s²)
