why there is no atmosphere on moon? is there something related to escape velocity.
Asked by ADITYA KUMAR SINGH | 2nd Mar, 2013, 04:58: PM
If we calculate the escape velocity on moon's surface it comes as a small quantity which is much less(2.3 km/sec) than the average (thermal )molecular speed of gases on moon therefore, there is no atmosphere on the moon.
