# How close to the fixed charge does the particle get before it comes to

A positive charge of 5.30 μC is fixed in place. From a distance of 4.60 cm a particle of mass 5.60 g and charge +3.30 μC is fired with an initial speed of 80.0 m/s directly toward the fixed charge. How close to the fixed charge does the particle get before it comes to rest and starts traveling away?

Answer by Sandhya seems to be correct as we have to consider potential energy in beginning also.

Thanks.
