  • Charles-Augustin de Coulomb [r]: (Angoulême June 14, 1736 – Paris August 23, 1806) French physicist known for formulating a law for the force between two electrically charged bodies. [e]
  • Chemical elements [r]: 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. [e]
  • Coulomb (disambiguation) [r]: Add brief definition or description
  • Coulomb (unit) [r]: SI unit of electric charge; symbol C; 1 C = 1 A⋅s. [e]
  • Coulomb's law (magnetic) [r]: An inverse-square law for the force between two magnetic monopoles. [e]
  • Dielectric [r]: an insulating, but polarizable, material that can be solid, liquid or gas; its important characterizing property is the relative permittivity (aka dielectric constant). [e]
  • Distribution (mathematics) [r]: Objects which generalize functions, used to formulate generalized solutions of partial differential equations. [e]
  • Divergence [r]: A first order differential vector operator acting on a vector field resulting in a scalar function. [e]
  • Electric constant [r]: 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. [e]
  • Electric field [r]: force acting on an electric charge—a vector field. [e]
  • Electromagnetism [r]: Phenomena and theories regarding electricity and magnetism. [e]
  • Energy (science) [r]: 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. [e]
  • Gauss' law (electrostatics) [r]: Relates the surface integral of the electric displacement through a closed surface to the electric charge enveloped by the closed surface. [e]
  • Gaussian units [r]: A centimeter-gram-second system of units often used in electrodynamics and special relativity. [e]
  • Gravitation [r]: The tendency of objects with mass to accelerate toward each other. [e]
  • Green's function [r]: Auxiliary function in the theory of linear differential equations; integral operator with Green function as kernel is the inverse of a linear differential operator. [e]
  • Hydrogen-like atom [r]: An atom, excluding hydrogen itself, with only one electron, having charge +(Z-1), where Z = atomic number. [e]
  • Intermolecular forces [r]: Non-covalent forces between atoms and molecules; often synonymous with Van der Waals forces. [e]
  • Inverse-square law [r]: 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. [e]
  • James Clerk Maxwell [r]: (1831 – 1879) Scottish physicist best known for his formulation of electromagnetic theory and the statistical theory of gases. [e]

  • Multipole expansion of electric field [r]: 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. [e]
