## The law

Coulomb's law states that*the magnitude of the Electrostatics force of interaction between two point charges is directly proportional to the scalar multiplication of the magnitudes of charges and inversely proportional to the square of the distances between them.*

If the two charges have the same sign, the electrostatic force between them is repulsive; if they have different sign, the force between them is attractive.

The scalar and vector forms of the mathematical equation are
