Coulomb’s Law and the Force of Electricity Electricity is a field force similar to gravity. The equations follow the same patterns and they are worth comparing in order to reinforce each other.

Coulomb’s Law and the Force of Electricity This version of Coulomb’s Law and the constant k are used in most situations in this course. The formal variant of the formula has certain advantages. Where the constant is the permittivity of free space F E = k q 1 q 2 r 2 k = 9 10 9 © RHJansen k = 1 4 π 0 = 1 4 π 8.85 10 -12 ( 29 = 9 10 9 F E = 1 4 π 0 θ 1 θ 2 ρ 2 0 = 8.85 10 -12

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
