Lecture 2-1 Coulomb’s Law Charges with the same sign repel each other, and charges with opposite signs attract each other. The electrostatic force between two particles is proportional to the amount of electric charge that each possesses and is inversely proportional to the distance between the two squared. 12 2 qq Fk r = Coulomb constant: by 1 on 2 & by 2 on 1 2 2 9 0 / 10 99 . 8 4 1 C m N k × = = πε where ε 0 is called the permittivity constant.
