The initial velocity v_i required to project a body


The initial velocity $v_{i}$ required to project a body vertically upward from the surface of the earth to reach a height of $10 \mathrm{R}$, where $\mathrm{R}$ is the radius of the earth, may be described in terms of

escape velocity $v_{\mathrm{e}}$ such that $v_{i}=\sqrt{\frac{x}{y}} \times v_{\mathrm{e}}$. The value of $x$ will be________.


$\frac{-\mathrm{GMm}}{11 \mathrm{R}}=\frac{-\mathrm{GMm}}{\mathrm{R}}+\frac{1}{2} \mathrm{mv}^{2}$

$v=\sqrt{\frac{20 G M}{11 R}}$
