The correct answer to this question is D. The amount of each charge and the distance between the charges. The two things that the electric force depends on is the distance and amount of each charge.

The electric force is a repulsive interaction. This interaction is between electrons and the nucleus. Research has shown that the electric force between the two objects is proportional.

This proportion is the inverse square of the distance between two of the objects. Along with that, the electric force does not depend on a particle's mass. Instead, it depends on the electric charge, which is why A, B, and C are wrong.    #### A. Cook

The two things in which the size of electric force depends are the amount of each charge and the distance between each charge.

The electric force is a repulsive interaction between electrons and nucleus. According to research, it has been proven that the electric force between two objects is proportional to the inverse square of the distance between two objects, and the electric force does not depend on the mass of the particle but on the electric charge. Therefore all other options listed above are incorrect
Hope this helps.    #### John Smith
