I’d like to know the answer to these questions but don’t know how to work them out. (No, not homework, at my age; just curious.)
According to this site the sun’s gravitational acceleration is 274.13 m/s^s. Given that,
If one was in direct free fall from earth’s orbital radius to the sun, how long would it take to hit the sun and how fast would you be going when you hit it?
If one was, say, just inside the the farthest distance that the sun’s gravity “reaches” (does gravity “reach”?), how long would it take to reach the sun and how fast would you be going when you hit it?
Apologies for my lack of rudimentary algebra skills.
