coulomb's lawmedical dictionary

<radiobiology> Force law governing the electrical interaction between charged particles. Force is proportional to (charge of first particle) (charge of second particle) / (square of separation between particles). Constant of proportionality depends on system of units used. (In SI units, it is 1/(4piepsilon_0), where epsilon_0 is the permittivity of free space, approx. 8.854 x 10^-12)
