When two charged bodies are placed close to each other then they might repel each other or attract each other.The type of force wheather force of repulsion or force of attraction depends on the nature of their charge.If both the bodies have similar charges(both positive or both negative),then there will be repulsive forces acting between them.But if there are opposite charges between them i.e one body is positive and other is negative then attractive forces will act on them.It is found that the attraction or repulsion force between bodies of same or different charges produce the invisible force on them which creates an electric field.
