Here's my question:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Starting from Coulomb's law, show that e^2/(4*pi*epsilon_0) has dimensions of energy times distance.

Coulombs law is F=(1/(4*pi*episilon_0))*(q1*q2/r^2)

I understand how to convert the units for e^2/(4*pi*epsilon_0), where e is the charge of the electron, to ev * nm.

Could someone explain how I can use this in conjunction with Coulomb's law to answer the question above? :surprised
