Answer:

145060km

Explanation: Given that

speed = dx/dt = 2t^2 +1

integrate

x = 2/3t^3 + t + c (c is constant, x is in km, t is in second)

given that at t=0, x = 1000

so 1000 = 2/3 X (0)^3 + 0 + c

or c = 1000

So x = 2/3t^3 + t + 1000

for t = 1 min = 60s

x = 2/3 X 60^3 + 60 + 1000

x = 2/3×216000+ 1060

x = 144000+1060

= 145060km

At one minute, it will be 145060km far from the earth
