# Compare and contrast coulomb's law and newton's law of universal gravitation?

Coulomb's Law states: The magnitude of the electrostatic force between two point electric charges is directly proportional to the product of the magnitudes of each charge and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between the chargesNewton's Law of gravitation states: Every point mass attracts every other point mass by a force pointing along the line intersecting both points. The force is proportional to the product of the two masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between the point masses:Similarity: 1) Both apply the inverse-square law; intenity inversely proportional to square of the distance. 2) Talking about spherical objects i.e. point charge, point mass. Differences: 1) one is about large mass; one is about small size huge charges. 2) Gravitation is ONLY ABOUT attraction and NO repulsion. Coulomb's force has both attraction and repulsion
