Electrostatic 1 Force An electromagnetic force exists between two objects provided both bodies have an electrical charge. In a neutral ground-state atom, the electromagnetic forces exerted by the negatively-charged electrons on some external charged body are canceled by the forces exerted by the equal number of positively-charged protons on that object. The negative electrons furthest from the attractive force of...
