This means that the capacitor is fully charged and that the distribution of E between the plates is uniform, as predicted by the Coulomb's law (curlE = 0 and divE = 0).
If we look at any single electron in Figure 1, it moves under the applied force (Coulomb's Law) from one location to another, transfers its energy to another electron, and then stays there (or perhaps gets deflected in a different direction) until another electron transfers its energy to it.
In order to have a model that considers both rolling and sliding interaction between the gear teeth, a modification of Coulomb's law is applied to obtain the equivalent kinetic friction coefficient.

In 1750, John Michel theorized that permanent magnet has north and south poles that attract or repel each other according to an inverse-square law that is similar to Coulomb's law of force.
The poles have magnetic charge that closely agrees with theoretical predictions, and the charges' interactions follow the same law that governs electric charges, Coulomb's Law.
The answer is obviously no to some extent as most of the male instructors are influenced by the Coulomb's Law of Attraction and Repulsion.
It is formulated in terms of continuous charge distributions and can be utilized to derive Coulomb's law (3).
