A question from H C Verma part 2 – electric field and potential. Question for short answer – #3 Consider 2 particles A and B having equal charges and placed at some distance. The particle A is slightly displaced towards B. Does the force on B increase as soon as the particle A is displaced? Does the force on A increase as soon as soon as it is displaced? I think answer to both should be yes, but it appears too easy so i think I am missing something, maybe it is easy, I just wanted to check. Thanks for your help.

Yes definitely the forces on the two charges will increase if the charges are stationery.(regardless of the polarity of the charges)....
As per Coulomb’s law:-mod (F)=Kmod(q1*q2)/d^2

I think the force on B Due to A will not increase as soon as particle A is displaced. This is because the electric field of A will take some time to propagate. The electric field at a distance R from A will take time R/C where C is the speed of light to displace. Whereas B is not displaced so there will not be any displacement of its electric field.

No, the force on B will not suddenly increase as A is displaced towards it because the electric field of A will take some finite time to move from its position. The electric field of A at a distance r from A will know that A has moved from its position after r/c seconds where c is the speed of light. It will start displacing itself r/c seconds when the particle A began to displace. So after r/c seconds B will start experiencing force from A. Whereas the particle B has no displacement so there is no need to its electrical field to move and A will experience the the force from B at the time it is displaced.

Yes, the force on both will be increased, if the charges are not moving they are in rest(stationery). So, that`s it.
