Question #161655

The electrical force, F, between two point charges is directly related to the product of the charges and inversely related to the distance between them. What happens to an electrical force if the distance between two charges doubles while all other factors remain constant?

The size of the force varies inversely as the square of the distance between the two charges. Therefore, if the distance between the two charges is doubled, the attraction or repulsion becomes weaker, decreasing to one-fourth of the original value. ... The size of the force is proportional to the value of each charge.
