Homework Help: Force of charged particles

  1. Dec 4, 2005 #1
    When a positive and negative charge are held close to each other and then released, does the force on each particle increase, decrease, or stay the same?

    when you release the particles, what happens?
    recall coulombs law:
    [tex] \vec{F} = \frac{1} {4 \pi \epsilon_0} \frac{q_1 q_2} {r^2} \hat{r} [/tex]
