# Charles Augustin De Coulomb

Charles-Augustin de Coulomb (14 June 1736 – 23 August 1806) was a French physicist. He is best known for developing Coulomb's law, the definition of the electrostatic force of attraction and repulsion. The SI unit of charge, the coulomb, was named after him.

TJ. Coulomb's law, or Coulomb's inverse-square law, is a law of physics describing the electrostatic interaction between electrically charged particles. The law was first published in 1785 by French physicist Charles Augustin de Coulomb and was essential to the development of the theory of electromagnetism.

This 16 slide Electric Force and Coulomb's Law lesson package begins with an introduction to Electric Force and Charles Augustin de Coulomb. It then overviews the Inverse Square Rule, describes what a Coulomb is, compares Electric and Gravitational forces and concludes with the mathematical approach to Calculating the Net Electric Force on an object. There are also 2 videos embedded in the PowerPoint.

Charles-Augustin de Coulomb (31 July 1736) | Urdu Movies Charles-Augustin de Coulomb, (born June 14, 1736, Angoulême, France—died August 23, 1806, Paris), French physicist best known for the formulation of Coulomb’s law, which states that the force between two electrical charges is proportional to the product of the charges and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them. Coulombic force is one of the principal forces involved in atomic reactions.
