# Advantages of Coulomb's Law

Coulomb's law helps us to find the force between two electric charges but what are the advantages of coulombs law?

Apart from finding the force between two electric charges what are the other advantages of coulombs law.

## Advantages of Coulomb's law:

Well, let me clear one thing there is no particular advantage of coulombs law for you if you are not from science background or physics background. Coulomb's law only helped in the progression of science.

We all know the main use of coulomb's law is to find the force between two electric charges.

Here is the list of how science got benefited from coulomb's law:-

Advantages of Coulomb's law
To find the force between two electric charge
To find the direction of a force
To derive electric field formula
To derive Gauss law
To find vector field due to charges

But there were some limitations to this law as well. Here is the list of limitations of Coulombs law:-

Disadvantages of Coulomb's law
Only applicable to find the force between charge at rest
Cannot find the distance between charges
Coulomb's law is derived with the help of inverse square law so it is only applicable where inverse square law is obeyed.

Inverse-square law states that the effect will be decreased square times the distance between them. To understand Coulomb's law and electric charge and field we have a whole dedicated article on it. Click on this link it will redirect you to that article.
