### Is electrostatic force a contact or non-contact force?

Static electricity is a non contact force because : Whether an object is charged by conduction or induction or even by friction they acquire a charge and the objects acquire opposite charge in induction and friction but same charge in conduction. So when the charged body is brought near an uncharged body if they have opposite charge they will be attracted towards the charged body due to the movement of ionic particles.
