What is an Electrostatic Force?

The electrostatic force is an attractive and repulsive force between particles are caused due to their electric charges. The electric force between stationary charged body is conventionally known as the electrostatic force. It is also referred to as Columb’s force.

Why electrostatic force is called coulomb’s force?

This Columb Interaction is named after the French physicist Charles-Augustin de Coulomb. Electrostatic Force is one of the four fundamental forces of nature. We make use of the Coulomb’s Law to solve the forces created by configurations of charge.

Electrostatics Examples

There are many examples of electrostatic force. Few of them are listed below

  • The force of attraction of the plastic wrap to one’s hand and later when hand is removed from the wrap.
  • The attraction of paper to a charged scale by rubbing to hair.
  • The apparently spontaneous explosion of grain silos
  • Photocopier & laser printer operation
