When it goes out of the gravitational force of the earth , thn Its Kinetic Enegry is 1/2 m (V)2 - U where V is Its initail velocity and U is the gravitational potential enegy of the particles againgt earths gravitation

Now, its velocity can be decuced by the following method :

1/2 m (Vnew)2=1/2 m (Vorg)2 - GMm/r

 (Vnew)2= (Vorg)2 - GM/2r

Vnew = ((Vorg)2 - GM/2r)1/2
