The force exerted by a charged body on another charged or uncharged body is called electrostatic force. This force is known as non-contact forcebecause these forces comes into play even when the bodies are not in contact with each other.

Electrostatic force is an attractive and repulsive force between particles caused due to their static electric charges. It is called non-contact force as it can attract or repulse particals without any physical contact.

I hope you understood.
