Escape speed of particle from earth surface =11.2 km/s

RMS velocity of H2 = \sqrt{\frac{3RT}{m}}

\sqrt{\frac{3 \times \frac{25}{3} \times T}{2 \times 10^{-3}}}=11.2 \;\; km/s=11.2 \times 10^{3} \; m/s

\frac{25T}{2 \times 10^{-3}}=(11.2)^{2}\times 10^{6}

T=\frac{2 \times 125.44 \times 10^{3}}{25}=10035.2K=10^{4}K


Option 1)

800 K

Option 2)

3 \times 10^{5}K

Option 3)

10^{4}K

Option 4)

650 K
