Homework Help: Law of Poles

  1. Dec 9, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    The question is this:

    State the law of poles (electric) states


    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution
    Ok, so I assume it's a typo above...and should read either:
    1. State the law of poles (electric)
    or
    2. The law of poles (electric) states.

    That is the question I am given. I feel it is important to say that this is a question on my physics final which my teacher made a take home final. That being said, I have already answered it such "Like charges repel and opposite charges attract." I have absolutely no intention of changing it if my answer proves wrong, however I am curious as to what exactly the question is getting at (couldn't find anything directly online). Thanks!

    Edit: I completely understand if you don't wish to answer this question (I turn the final in tomorrow).
