Escape velocity is v =√{(2GM)/r}

here G = gravitational constant =6.67384 × 10⁻¹¹

so given radius

of the moon is 1.74 × 10⁶ m and mass of the moon is 7.36 × 10^22 kg.

equating v we get 2375.82 m/s

here G = gravitational constant =6.67384 × 10⁻¹¹

so given radius

of the moon is 1.74 × 10⁶ m and mass of the moon is 7.36 × 10^22 kg.

equating v we get 2375.82 m/s
