escape velocity at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

Speed sufficient for a body to escape from a gravitational center of attraction without accelerating further. It decreases with altitude and equals the square root of 2 (about 1.414) times the speed needed to maintain a circular orbit at the same altitude. At the surface of earth, disregarding atmospheric resistance, escape velocity is about 6.96 mi/second (11.20 km/second). Escape velocity from the surface of the moon is about one-third of this.
