# force vs force

If 2 positively charged bodies of 1kg each are kept at a distance of 1m.Will the 2 bodies attract(Gravitational force) or repel(electrostatic force) each other.

Sort by:

The electrostatic forces are way stronger than gravitational forces despite both of them following inverse square law. The bodies will repel each other. Try calculating the forces and you will realise the difference in orders of magnitude ( The electrostatic force in vacuum will be about a $$100$$ times larger even if both the charges are of $$1 \text{ nC}$$ each. - I have assumed the bodies to be point objects.)

If the masses of charged bodies would be taken such that the magnitude of Gravitational force equals the electrostatic force of repulsion,then?
