Can somebody explain Coulombs equation to me? What do the q1 and q2 stand for?

Coulomb's equation essentially measures the electrostatic force between two charged particles. It's called the electrostatic force because the equation only works if the two particles are stationary. The greater the charges, the greater the electrostatic force. The greater the distance between the two particles, the smaller the electrostatic force.
