How much work would it take to push two protons very slowly from a separation of (a typical atomic distance) to (a typical nuclear distance)?

If the protons are both released from rest at the closer distance in part A, how fast are they moving when they reach their original separation?

I think the answer to the first one is 7.68×10−14 J

Thanks in advance.
