Hyperphysics -- Coulomb's Law

This web page, authored by Rod Nave of Georgia State University, provides a concise, yet thorough explanation of Coulomb's Law and how it it is used to determine the electric force between charges. A Javascript calculator is available to compute forces between charges. Links are available for users to access related items or delve more deeply into electromagnetic forces. This item is part of a large hyper-linked resource that covers most of physics, with extensive use of concept maps.
