Christopher Columbus was not looking for a new land. He was looking for a new ROUTE from one known land (Europe) to another known land (the Spice Islands). . The old route was around the tip of Africa and was a very long journey. He reasoned that the world was like a ball not flat, and if he went a…round the ball in the opposite direction the journey would be shorter. He ran into a couple of continents that were in his way by accident. His mistake was in thinking the ball was smaller than it really was. ( Full Answer )

Coulomb's Law. "the force of attraction or repulsion between two 'point' charges is directly proportional to the product of their charges and inversely proportional to the squared of the distance between them." consider two very very very tiny particles. both have a positive char…ge. now we know that opposite charges attract each other. so, if we bring them close they will try to stick to each other. lets call charge one q1 and charge two q2. the force they experience(according to coulomb's law) will be f É q1 x q2 É=alpha, sign of proportionality f=force the force will be inverse of the distance between them(visualize this scenario) f 1/É r^2 r is the distance the final equation becomes. f=K (q1q2)/r^2 and k is the coulombs constant. it has a value which is 8.9x10^9 Nm2C^-2 that's all ..

Actually he tried to find an alternative route to India but discovered America.the queen paid him money to find these lands
In Columbus's first voyage, he landed on some small islands, then continued to Cuba, near Florida.
He opened the doorway for more europeans to come to the Americas and spred disease & start wars & enslave the natives.. & then turn around and act like they are the only ones that belong in the US & start kicking out people who's anceastors have been here for many thousands of years
