Escape Velocity, Energy, and Rotation

Lecture no. 6 from the course: Black Holes, Tides, and Curved Spacetime: Understanding Gravity

Escape Velocity, Energy, and Rotation

Taught by Professor Benjamin Schumacher | 28 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

Begin the first of several lectures that dig deeper into Newton’s laws than Newton himself was able to go. In this lecture, apply the key concepts of energy and angular momentum to study how gravity affects motion. As an example, use simple algebra to calculate the escape velocity from Earth.
