I believe it is just the force of attraction between oppositely charged particles; particles of opposite charges are attracted to each other, while particles with the same charge repel each other.

It is a natural attraction between positive and negative charges, and a natural repulsion between similar charges. For example, electrons in orbital around a hydrogen atom would have a coulombic attraction to the protons within the nucleus.

It is the force of attraction between positive and negative charges. It is responsible for the current generated in a circuit because the free electrons in the conducting wire are attracted to the positive end of the battery.

Coulombic attraction is the distance between the charged particles. The farther apart they are the weaker the attractive force and the closer they are the stronger the attractive force.
