# What is the force, in terms of Coulomb's constant, between two electrical charges of #22 C# and #-32 C# that are #6 m # apart?

##### 1 Answer

It is an attraction force of

#### Explanation:

Coulomb's Law, in equation form, is

where F is the magnitude of the force of attraction, or repulsion, between 2 charges,

k is known as Coulomb's constant and has a value of

and r is the distance between the charges, in meters.

The force is a force of attraction if F has a negative value and repulsion if the value of F has a positive value.

My apologies for the need to edit, I originally overlooked the request that the answer be in terms of k."

I hope this helps,
