# Coulomb's Law Calculator - Solve for Force, Charge, or Distance

Calculate unknown values (force, charge, or distance) using Coulomb's law scalar formula with this online calculator. Solve physics problems with ease.

### Using the Calculator

To utilize the Coulomb's Law Calculator, first, select the value you want to calculate: charge, force, or distance. If the charges are equal in your problem, you can check the "Equal Charges" checkbox. Otherwise, you can enter the second charge value in the additional field.

The remaining input fields depend on the selected value:

• If calculating charge:
Force: Enter the force value and select the unit from the combobox (newton, millinewton, micronewton, nanonewton, piconewton).
Distance: Enter the distance value and select the unit from the combobox (meter, centimeter, millimeter, micrometer, nanometer).

• If calculating force:
Charge: Enter the charge value and select the unit from the combobox (coulomb, millicoulomb, microcoulomb, nanocoulomb, picocoulomb).
Distance: Enter the distance value and select the unit from the combobox (meter, centimeter, millimeter, micrometer, nanometer).

• If calculating distance:
Charge: Enter the charge value and select the unit from the combobox (coulomb, millicoulomb, microcoulomb, nanocoulomb, picocoulomb).
Force: Enter the force value and select the unit from the combobox (newton, millinewton, micronewton, nanonewton, piconewton).

Once you've entered the required values, click the "Calculate" button. The calculator will determine the unknown value based on the known values you provided.

### Understanding Coulomb's Law

The calculator is based on Coulomb's law, which relates the force between two charged objects to their charges and the distance between them. The scalar form of Coulomb's law equation is:

Here, is Coulomb's constant, given by , where is the electrical constant (approximately ).

This calculator is a valuable tool for solving school physics problems. You can use it to calculate various unknowns based on known values using Coulomb's law. Examples of typical problems include determining the magnitude of the electrical force of repulsion between two point charges or finding the separation distance between charged objects.
