## Main Question or Discussion Point

Bit confused here. Electrons repel each other because they both have negative charges. But wouldn't they also ATTRACT each other because of the force of gravity?

[itex]F_{g} = \frac {Gm_{1}m_{2}} {d^{2}}[/itex]

Do two electrons by this law have a force of gravity that attracts them? Is it possible to get two identically charged particles to ATTRACT if the force of gravity given by the above formula is GREATER than the repulsive electron force?
