the force between two charges
K . . .
a constant, which you don't have to worry about right now;
It makes the units come out right, and it also accounts for the electrostatic
properties of the substance, medium, or space between the charges.
Q1, Q2 . . .
the size and sign of each charge
R . . .
the distance between the charges, or between their centers
if they're spread out
