In the radioactive decay (see Fig. below), a 238U nucleus transforms to 234Th and an ejected 4He. (These are nuclei, not atoms, and thus electrons are not involved.) When the separation between 234Th and 4He is 38.0 × 10-15 m, what are the magnitudes of (a) the electrostatic force between them and (b) the acceleration of the 4He particle? Appendix F will help.
