For calculating the force on a continuous charge distribution due to another continuous charge distribution, if F=kdqdq'/r^2 would you simply integrate first over dq' and then dq?

Coulomb's Law Generalized is a physical law that describes the electrostatic force between two charged particles. It states that the force is directly proportional to the product of the charges and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between the particles.
Coulomb's Law Generalized was discovered by French physicist Charles-Augustin de Coulomb in 1785. He conducted experiments with charged objects and determined the mathematical relationship between the force, charges, and distance.
Coulomb's Law Generalized is an extension of Coulomb's Law, which only applies to point charges that are stationary. Coulomb's Law Generalized takes into account the size and shape of the charged objects and also applies to moving charges.
The SI unit of measurement for the force in Coulomb's Law Generalized is Newtons (N).
Coulomb's Law Generalized and the force between two magnets are both examples of fundamental forces in physics. The force between two magnets is described by a similar equation to Coulomb's Law Generalized, but it takes into account the orientation and magnetic properties of the magnets in addition to their distance.
