Coulomb's Law

Coulomb's law is the magnitude of the electrostatic force between two electric charges.

Coulomb's Law FORMULA

\(F_e = k  \frac{q_1  q_2} {l^2}\)

Where:

\(F_e\) = electrostatic force

\(q_1\) = electric charge 1

\( q_2\) = electric charge 2

\(l\) = distance between the two charges

\(k\) = Coulmbo's constant  \( \left( \; 8.9875517873681764 \cdot 10^9  Nm^2  C^{-2}  \; \right)\)
