Coulomb force

Save This Word!

The force exerted by stationary objects bearing electric charge on other stationary objects bearing electric charge. If the charges are of the same sign, then the force is repulsive; if they are of opposite signs, the force is attractive. The strength of the force is described by Coulomb's law. Also called electrostatic force
