###### FREE Expert Solution

From Coulomb's law:

$\overline{){\mathbf{F}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{k}{\mathbf{q}}_{\mathbf{1}}{\mathbf{q}}_{\mathbf{2}}}{{\mathbf{r}}^{\mathbf{2}}}}$, where F is the electric force between the two charged objects, k is Coulomb constant, q1 is a charge of the first object, q2 is the charge of the second object, and r is the distance between the two objects.
