# COULOMB REPULSION

 The electrostatic force of repulsion exerted by one charged particle on another charged particle of the same sign. Also known as electrostatic repulsion.

## Related Terms

### COULOMB ATTRACTION

The electrostatic force of attraction exerted by one charged particle on another charged particle of opposite sign. Also known as electrostatic attraction.

### ELECTROSTATIC FORCE

Force on a charged particle due to an electrostatic field, equal to the electric field vector times the charge of the particle.

### COULOMB FORCE

The electrostatic force of attraction or repulsion exerted by one charged particle on another, in accordance with Coulomb's law.

### ELECTROSTATIC VOLTMETER

A voltmeter in which the voltage to be measured is applied between fixed and movable metal vanes; the resulting electrostatic force deflects the movable vane against the tension of a spring.

### ELECTROSTATIC FORCE MICROSCOPY

The use of an atomic force microscope to measure electrostatic forces from electric charges on a surface.

### COULOMB POTENTIAL

A scalar point function equal to the work per unit charge done against the Coulomb force in transferring a particle bearing an infinitesimal positive charge from infinity to a point in the field of a specific charge distribution.

### ENERGY INTEGRAL

A constant of integration resulting from integration of Newton's second law of motion in the case of a conservative force; equal to the sum of the kinetic energy of the particle and the potential energy of the force acting on it.

### CONSERVATIVE FORCE FIELD

A field of force in which the work done on a particle in moving it from one point to another depends only on the particle's initial and final positions.

### CENTRIFUGAL BARRIER

A steep rise, located around the center of force, in the effective potential governing the radial motion of a particle of non-vanishing angular momentum in a central force field, which results from the centrifugal force and prevents the particle from reaching the center of force, or causes its Schro dinger wave function to vanish there in a quantum-mechanical system.

### CENTER OF ATTRACTION

A point toward which a force on a body or particle (such as gravitational or electrostatic force) is always directed; the magnitude of the force depends only on the distance of the body or particle from this point.
