The law of electric charges states that ...

  • Like charges repel, or push away
  • Opposite charges attract, or come together

WHY does it do that?

  • Because Protons are positively charged and Electrons are negatively charged.

They have opposite charges, and the Law of Electric Charges states:

  • Without this attraction electrons couldn't be held in an atom.
