Coulomb's Law: Force Between Two Points

The force between two point charges is given by

F = (k(q_1)(q_2))/r^2

k = 9.0 * 10^9 * (N * M)/C^2

Using Coulomb's Law, What is the force, in billions of Newtons, rounded to the nearest whole number, between a pair of like charged particles if one particle is 2.0 Culomb and the second particle is 2.0 Culomb and they are 1.0 meter apart?

Solution Summary

This solution uses Coulomb's law to easily find the answer for force.
