Awesome! The escape velocity will increase because as the Earth becomes more massive, it will pull down on objects more forcefully. So, more speed would be required to escape it.
If the Earth had the same mass, but, its size became bigger, what would happen to the escape velocity?
  • Becomes more than 11.2 km/s
  • Becomes less than 11.2 km/s
  • Stays the same
