The H2+ ion is composed of two protons, each of charge +e= 1.6(10^-19)C, and  an electron, of charge -e and mass 9.11(10^-31)kg. The separation between the  protons is 1.07(10^-10)m. The protons and the electron may be treated as point  charges. a) Suppose the electron is located at the point midway between the two protons.  What is the potential energy of the interaction between the electron and the two  protons? (Do not include the potential energy due to the interaction between the  two protons.) U=  −8.60×10 −18 J b)Suppose the electron in part A has a velocity of magnitude 2.20×10^6 m/s in a
