The fundamental clectrical property to which the mutual attractions or repulsions between ewctrons or protons is attributed. charge
The principle that net clectric charge is neither created nor destroyed but is transferablefrom one material to another. conservation of charge
THe relationship among electrical force, charges, and distance:The electrical force between two charges varies directly as the product of the charges and inversely as the spuare of the distance between them. Coulomb's law
