Meteor Crater in Arizona (see Fig) is thought to have been formed by the impact of a meteorite with the Earth some 20,000 years ago. The mass of the meteorite is estimated to be 5 X 10 10 kg and its speed to have been 7.2 km/s. What speed would such a meteorite impart to the Earth in a head-on collision?
