Coulomb energy

Coulomb energy

[′kü‚läm ‚en·ər·jē]
(physics)
The part of the binding energy of a system of particles, such as an atomic nucleus of a solid, which is associated with electrostatic forces between the particles.
(physical chemistry)
The energy associated with the electrostatic interaction between two or more electron distributions in terms of which the actual electron distribution of a covalent bond is described.
