Two equal heavy masses are situated at a separation r subscript o. One of them is imparted a velocity v subscript o=square root of G m divided by r subscript o end root perpendicular to the line joing them. Treating motion only under mutual gravitational force find the ratio of maximum and minimum separation between them.
