There will hence be two opposing forces acting between negatively charged bodies. There will be a hydrodynamical force of mutual attraction and a polarization force of mutual centrifugal repulsion. If the repulsive centrifugal mechanism is dominant at close range, a graph demonstrating the sum of these two forces will have the exact same shape as the graph that illustrates the inter atomic bonding force. There will be a mutually repulsive force at short range and a mutually attractive force at long range that tapers off towards zero.
