Problem

ProblemAbout 50,000 years ago, a meteor crashed into the earth near present-day Flagstaff, Arizona. Some estimates suggest this meteor had a mass of about 1.4×10^{8} kg and released 1×10^{16} J of energy when it slammed into the Earth. Calculate the approximate speed of this meteor before impact.

A

8,450 m/s

B

12,000 m/s
