2. Our calculation is similar to that shown in Sample Problem 43-1. We set K =5 . 30 MeV = U = (1 / 4 πε 0 )( q α q Cu /r min ) and solve for the closest separation, r min : r min = q α q Cu 4 0 K = kq α q Cu 4 0 K = (2 e )(29)(1 . 60 × 10 19 C)(8 . 99 × 10 9 V · m / C) 5 . 30 × 10 6 eV =1 . 58 × 10 14 m=15 . 8fm . We note that the factor of
