    • 2.1: Coulomb’s Law
      The superposition principle (superposition property) states that for all linear forces the total force is a vector sum of individual forces.
    • 2.2: Charge
      Charge is a property of matter. There are two kinds of charge, positive “+” and negative “-”. An object can have positive charge, negative charge, or no charge at all. A particle which has charge causes a force-per-charge-of-would-be-victim vector to exist at each point in the region of space around itself.
