The concept of "difference of potential" descends from Coulomb's law and it is not appropriate in a time-dependent situation.
It might occur because of the forces behind Coulomb's Law. It might happen because of photons being emitted.
The Coulomb's law of friction can be used to define the resistive force between two involute spur gear teeth:
First, the actual Law of Attraction, called Coulomb's Law after the eighteenth-century physicist C.

The tectonic stress measured by hydraulic fracturing method in borehole is introduced into the calculation of critical pore-pressure for frictional shear slip of fractures according to Coulomb's law. The estimated critical pore-pressure suggests that the fluid pressure in pre-existing fractures are higher near the permeable fracture zones in the well, and declines as the fractures are away from the intersecting portions.
One of those is Coulomb's Law, "The force between two charges is equal to the product of the two charges divided by the square of the distance between them."
According to Coulomb's law; the friction between the surfaces always opposes motion, it is proportional to the normal force between the surfaces, and it is independent of the area size in contact.
At low load, the friction shear stress is described by Coulomb's law. With increasing load it reaches the maximum shear stress, causing the polymer to yield on the contact surface.
Describing the motions of charged bodies requires appeal to (inter alia) Coulomb's Law (F = kqq[prime]/[d.sup.2]); and if the charged bodies are very small, the relatively weak gravitational effect will be swamped by the electromagnetic effect.
Newton's law of gravity and Coulomb's law of electric force were classically unified into a single expression of the interaction between the complex energies of two electrically charged particles.
