Two frictionless pucks are placed on a level surface, as shown, at an initial distance of
20.0 m. The mass of puck 1 is 0.80 kg and it has a charge of +3.0 ×10^-4 , while puck 2 is
0.40 kg with a charge of +3.0 ×10^-4 . The initial velocity of puck 1 is 12.0 m/s [E] and the initial velocity of puck 2 is 8.0 m/s [W]. Find the minimum separation of the two pucks (the minimum distance between the pucks).
