The Electrical energy formula is this:

Ee = k(q1)(q2)/r

So lets say a positive and negative charge are directly next to each other.

Conceptually, there should be no potential energy there.

But the formula (r=0.00001m) suggests that it is huge.

On the other end, if two positive charges are far away from each other (r=1000), energy should be huge, but the formula suggests it gets smaller.

I appreciate all the help!
