Answer :

Let the mass of the particle be m and the initial velocity

Here, initial kinetic energy,


Initial potential energy,


Let the final velocity be . Hence, final kinetic energy is


And since the particle is drifting in space, under no influence of gravity, its final potential energy


Now, using energy conservation,
