Electrostatic Forces and Fields
Electronic forces are (like gravity) "Action at a distance."
As two surfaces come in contact with each other, charge exchange occurs, resulting in the development of electrostatic forces.
Coulumbs law , designed by a french physicist named Charles Augustin De Coulumb, determines the forces of attraction.
Someone opening up a plastic package is the most common example of electrostatic force that is seen in everyday life. Usually, the bag becomes stuck to your fingers. That's because the package contains electrically-resistant properties which rub against other surfaces building up a electrostatic charge.
