Gauss’s Law

Equation #10: Gauss’ Law Every charge produces an electric field around it. Coulomb’s law comes in handy when we have one or two charges. It gets really cumbersome to use Coulomb’s law for calculations involving a bunch of charges and

Electrostatics: Coulomb’s Law and Principle of Superposition

The study of electromagnetism begins with the knowledge that there is a fundamental property of particles, called electric charge. Early experiments in electrostatics found that this charge can be negative or positive. Like charges attract while unlike charges repel: So
