This experiment further explores the electrostatic interaction between charged objects. The
concepts of electric field and potential are illustrated primarily through exercises with

In 1686, Newton published the first quantitative description of the gravitational force between any two
objects. He explained that the force of gravity is directly proportional to the product of the masses, m1
and m2, a
