Question:

When using Coulomb\u2019s law to determine the force between two objects, what does the \u201Cd\u201D in the formula represent?

A The distance of separation between two objects
Explaination

Coulomb's law is F = (k\u00A0\u00D7\u00A0Q1\u00D7 Q2) \u00F7 d \u00D7 2. The \u201Cd\u201D in Coulomb\u2019s law represents the distance of separation between two objects. The \u201CF\u201D represents the electrostatic force of attraction or repulsion between objects 1 and 2. The \u201CQ\u201D in Coulomb\u2019s law represents the quantity of charge on an object. The \u201Ck\u201D represents the Coulomb\u2019s law constant (9 x 10^9$2132_w68_h21.png$).
