Coulomb’s Law

  • Charles Coulomb discovered that the repulsive force due to similar charges or the attractive force of dissimilar charges was inversely proportional to the square of the distance between the two charged bodies.

Coulomb’s Law

  • Coulomb further discovered that the force was proportional to the product of the charge on each of the objects.

Coulomb’s Law

  • Where:

  • k = 8.99 x 109 N•m2/C2

  • q1, q2 = the charge of each sphere in Coulombs.

  • r = the distance between the two charged bodies.

    • Applet 1 - Coulomb's Law

    • Applet II - Coulomb's Law


Example 1

Example 1:

Two point charges,

q1 = 1C

q2 = 2C

are separated by 1 m. What is the force between them?

F = kq1q2 / r2

= (8.99E9N*m2/C2)(1C)(2C)/(1m) 2

= 1.8E10N

Where:

k = 8.99 x 109 N•m2/C2

q1, q2 = the charge of each sphere in Coulombs.

r = the distance between the two charged bodies.


Example 2

Example 2:

Two point charges,

q1 = 1C

q2 = -2C

are separated by 1 m. What is the force between them?

F = kq1q2 / r2

= (8.99E9N*m2/C2)(1C)(2C)/(1m) 2

= -1.8E10N

Where:

k = 8.99 x 109 N•m2/C2

q1, q2 = the charge of each sphere in Coulombs.

r = the distance between the two charged bodies.


Example 3

Example 3:

Two point charges,

q1 = 1E-19C

q2 = -2E-19C

are separated by 1E-10 m. What is the force between them?

F = kq1q2 / r2

= (8.99E9N*m2/C2)(1E-19C)(-2E-19C)/(1E-10m) 2

= -1.798E-8N

Where:

k = 8.99 x 109 N•m2/C2

q1, q2 = the charge of each sphere in Coulombs.

r = the distance between the two charged bodies.


Example 4

Example 4:

At what distance does the electrostatic force between two protons equal 899N?

F = kq1q2 / r2 kq1q2 / F = r2

(8.99E9)(1.6E-19)2 / 899 = (2.56E-31) r= 5.05E-16

Where:

k = 8.99 x 109 N•m2/C2

q1, q2 = the charge of each sphere in Coulombs.

r = the distance between the two charged bodies.


Graphs oh no not again

Graphs (oh, no, not again.)

  • Graph of F vs. r?

  • Graph of F vs. q1q2?


Key ideas

Key Ideas

  • Like charges repel.

  • The electrostatic force is proportional to the charge on the two objects and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them.
