Coulomb’s Law

Here are some important notes about Coulomb’s Law:

  • any two charged objects will create a force on each other
  • opposite charges will produce an attractive force
  • similar charges will produce a repulsive force
  • the greater the charges, the greater the force
  • the greater the distance between the two objects, the smaller the force
  • since the forces are force pairs of each other, they will always be equal in size and opposite in direction
  • the net force on a charge is the sum of the forces from all the other charges
