## Homework Statement

If a proton and an electron are released when they are 8.00×10e-10 m apart (typical atomic distances), find the initial acceleration of each of them.

## Homework Equations

F=ma

F=kq1q2/re2

F=kee2/r2

## The Attempt at a Solution

Since r=8x10e-10, I solved for the force, because the charge between proton and electron will be the same. From that I got 2.88x10e-10. Then, using F=ma, I divided the force by the mass of the electron (9.10 x 10e-31) and got 3.16x10e11. This was wrong so I am stuck here...
