Conceptual Experiment

For this activity, you are going to calculate escape velocities for several exoplanets and compare them with our major planets. 

In order to find escape velocities for the given exoplanets, enter the appropriate values of their masses and radii in unit of Earth's mass and Earth's radius in the provided template. Then, the escape velocity and gravitational acceleration will be automatically evaluated. 

In the case of our major planets, insert data from Table 10.1 on p. 199 in the textbook. 

After completing the table, answer the questions directly on the worksheet. 

You will save and upload your work on the provided template and submit it when you are complete.
