Two parallel plates, each charged equally and oppositely to the other, are separated by 2.3500 cm. A proton is let go from rest at the positive plate's surface and, at the same time, an electron is let go from rest at the negative plate's surface. What is the distance between the negative plate and the point where the proton and the electron go by each other?

Note: unlike most questions, this one will need your answer correct to 5 significant digits
