# What are the types of electric forces?

Contents

Electrical force consists of two different types of charges. They are positive electric charge and negative electric charge. The interaction of both of these charges is easily predictable.

## What are different types of forces?

Or to read about an individual force, click on its name from the list below.

• Applied Force.
• Gravitational Force.
• Normal Force.
• Frictional Force.
• Air Resistance Force.
• Tension Force.
• Spring Force.

## What are the 2 types of charges?

Electric charges are of two general types: positive and negative. Two objects that have an excess of one type of charge exert a force of repulsion on each other when relatively close together.

## What are examples of electrostatic forces?

Examples of electrostatic forces:

• When we run a piece of paper with the oil in our head with the help of a comb produces electrostatic force.
• Balloons get attracted to another balloon when one of them are rubbed with hair.

## What is electrostatic force in simple words?

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.

## What does Coulomb’s law state?

According to Coulomb, the electric force for charges at rest has the following properties: Like charges repel each other; unlike charges attract. Thus, two negative charges repel one another, while a positive charge attracts a negative charge. … The size of the force is proportional to the value of each charge.

## What is electric force formula?

The electric field E is defined to be E=Fq E = F q , where F is the Coulomb or electrostatic force exerted on a small positive test charge q. E has units of N/C. The magnitude of the electric field E created by a point charge Q is E=k|Q|r2 E = k | Q | r 2 , where r is the distance from Q.
