The scattering among three particles interacting through [Formula Presented] forces, with opposite charges and widely different masses, is studied in a coplanar geometry. The present work shows that at low impact velocities the output of the collision presents typical characteristics of chaos. The details of the process are investigated. © 1999 The American Physical Society.
