|- to determine, as far as a combination of
mathematics and physics will permit, the influence of friction and cohesion
in some problems of statics.
Did you know...?
|-Did you know that Coulomb's Law was not actually
discovered by Charles Coulomb? It was discovered by Henry Cavendish. However,
Cavendish did not publish his results, and his documents were not discovered
until half a century after his death. This was lucky for Coulomb, since
he received the credit and fame for this spectacular discovery.
-Because of his good deeds to the field of
electrical theory, the unit of quantity is used to measure electrical charges,
the coulomb, was named after him.
His law represents (in equation form) the magnitude
of the electric forces between two electrical charges.F=k x q1 x q2/d2
k is contstant q1=>charge one q2=>charge two d=>distance
-He invented the magneticscope, magnometer,
and the torsionbalance.
-Coulomb researched the friction of machinery,
windmills, and the elasticity of metal and silk fibers. He developed his
theories while attempting to investigate the law of electrical repulsions.
He discovered what is now known as Coulomb's Law, which states:
The force between 2 electrical charges is proportional
to the product of the charges and inversely proportional to the square
of the distance between them.
This repulsion formula was applied to the math
theory of magnetic forces. Coulombic force, which is one of the key forces
in atomic reactions, was named in his honor.
Positive /Negative Charges
-Key charges- electric charges attract. Static
Electricity: is a buildup of an electric charge on an object. Electric
discharge: is the process of balancing electrical charges.
