47. We use conservation of energy, taking the potential energy to be zero when the moving electron is far away from the Fxed electrons. The Fnal potential energy is then U f =2 e 2 / 4 πε 0 d ,where d is half the distance between the Fxed electrons. The initial kinetic energy is K i = 1 2 mv 2 ,where m is the mass of an electron and v
