- Charles-Augustin de Coulomb : (Angoulême June 14, 1736 – Paris August 23, 1806) French physicist known for formulating a law for the force between two electrically charged bodies.
- Chemical elements : In one sense, refers to species or types of atoms, each species/type distinguished by the number of protons in the nuclei of the atoms belonging to the species/type, each species/type having a unique number of nuclear protons; in another sense, refers to substances, or pieces of matter, each composed of multiple atoms solely of a single species/type.
- Coulomb (disambiguation) : Add brief definition or description
- Coulomb (unit) : SI unit of electric charge; symbol C; 1 C = 1 A⋅s.
- Coulomb's law (magnetic) : An inverse-square law for the force between two magnetic monopoles.
- Dielectric : an insulating, but polarizable, material that can be solid, liquid or gas; its important characterizing property is the relative permittivity (aka dielectric constant).
- Distribution (mathematics) : Objects which generalize functions, used to formulate generalized solutions of partial differential equations.
- Divergence : A first order differential vector operator acting on a vector field resulting in a scalar function.
- Electric constant : A physical constant in the International System of Units (SI) relating capacitance to area in classical vacuum with an exact value ε0 = 107/(4πc02) F/m, c0 being the defined value for the speed of light in classical vacuum in the SI units.
- Electric field : force acting on an electric charge—a vector field.
- Electromagnetism : Phenomena and theories regarding electricity and magnetism.
- Energy (science) : A measurable physical quantity of a system which can be expressed in joules (the metric unit for a quantity of energy) or other measurement units such as ergs, calories, watt-hours or Btu.
- Gauss' law (electrostatics) : Relates the surface integral of the electric displacement through a closed surface to the electric charge enveloped by the closed surface.
- Gaussian units : A centimeter-gram-second system of units often used in electrodynamics and special relativity.
- Gravitation : The tendency of objects with mass to accelerate toward each other.
- Green's function : Auxiliary function in the theory of linear differential equations; integral operator with Green function as kernel is the inverse of a linear differential operator.
- Hydrogen-like atom : An atom, excluding hydrogen itself, with only one electron, having charge +(Z-1), where Z = atomic number.
- Intermolecular forces : Non-covalent forces between atoms and molecules; often synonymous with Van der Waals forces.
- Inverse-square law : A physical law stating that some physical quantity or strength is inversely proportional to the square of the distance from the source of that physical quantity.
- James Clerk Maxwell : (1831 – 1879) Scottish physicist best known for his formulation of electromagnetic theory and the statistical theory of gases.
- Maxwell equations : Mathematical equations describing the interrelationship between electric and magnetic fields; dependence of the fields on electric charge- and current- densities.
- Molecular Hamiltonian : Quantum mechanical operator describing the energy associated with motions and interactions of the electrons and nuclei that constitute a molecule.
- Multipole expansion (interaction) : A mathematical series representing a function that depends on angles, and frequently used in the study of electromagnetic, and gravitational fields, where the fields at distant points are given in terms of sources in a small region.
- Multipole expansion of electric field : an expansion in terms of powers of 1/R of an electric potential outside a charge distribution; R is the distance of a point outside to a point inside the charge distribution.
- Polarizability : The ease by which a charge-distribution polarizes; describes the amount of charge separation caused by an electric field.
- Relative permittivity : A factor describing the polarizability of a material or medium as a proportionality between an electric displacement and an electric field in a dielectric.
- Statcoulomb : Unit of electric charge in cgs-esu units: 1 statC = C/(10⋅c), with c the speed of light in m/s.
- Vector field : A vector function on the three-dimensional Euclidean space .
