More specifically, I am wondering what the energy released is when the electromagnetic force is also included in this calculation. In the case where the electron and positron are at a distance d, the energy released would be the mass energy (1.022 MeV) plus the energy that resulted from the electromagnetic attraction. Using Coulomb's Law, the energy released should be infinite, which is obviously not the case. What does QED say about the mater? Has an experiment which measured the energy released accurately enough to see the extra energy from the electromagnetic attraction?
