(a) As we know, Gravitational potential energy = - GM /r

and orbital velocity, v0 = vGM/R+h

Ef = ½ mv20 – GMm/3R = ½ m GM/3R – GMm/3R

= GMm/3R (1/2-1) = - GMm/6R

Ei = - GM/R + K

Ei = Ef

Therefore minimum required energy, K = 5GMm/6R

The kinetic energy at altitude 2 R = G M m ÷ 6 R
The gravitational potential energy at altitude 2 R = – G M m ÷ 3 R
Total energy = Kinetic energy + potential energy
                     = G M m ÷ 6 R – G M m ÷ 3 R
                     = – G M m ÷ 6 R
Potential energy at the surfce is – G M m ÷ R
Therefore, required kinetic energy = G M m ÷ R – G M m ÷ 6 R
                                                       = 5 G M m ÷ 6 R
