An alpha particle and an antiproton are released from rest a great distance apart. They are oppositely charged so each accelerates toward the other. What are the speeds of the two particles when they are 2.5 nm apart?

alpha particle has a charge of +2e and is four times as massive as a proton

antiproton has a charge of -e but has the same mass as a proton
