$F}_{12}=k\cdot \frac{{Q}_{1}{Q}_{2}}{{r}^{2}}\cdot \frac{{r}_{21}}{r}=k\cdot \frac{{Q}_{1}{Q}_{2}}{{r}^{2}}\cdot {e}_{21$

where **F**_{12} is the force exerted on the particle with electric charge *Q*_{1} by the particle with electric charge *Q*_{2} , *k* a positive constant, **r**_{21} the vector from the particle with electric charge *Q*_{2} to the particle with electric charge *Q*_{1}, *r* = |**r**_{21}| the distance between particles and **e**_{21} the unit vector **r**_{21}/*r*
*ε*_{0} where *ε*_{0} is the electric constant.
