The sun is 3 x 105 times heavier than the earth and is at a distance 2.5 x 104 times larger than the radius of the earth. The escape velocity from the earth's gravitational field is ve = 11.2 km s–1. The minimum initial velocity (vs) required for the rocket to be able to leave the sun-earth system is closest to which of the following?
