Distance Between Particles and Energy in Positronium

Positronium is an atom composed of an electron and a positron (mp = me, Q = +e). Calculate the distance between the particles and the energy of the lowest energy state of positronium. Hint: the reduced mass µ of the two particles equals me/(1 + me/m).
