Hello everyone,

I found this article ( newbielink:http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.elstat.2011.10.008 [nonactive]), which is supposedly a generalisation of Coulomb's law ( newbielink:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coulomb's_law [nonactive]).

It looks very interesting to me as the authors theoretically derive a formula for the force of electrostatic interaction between two electrically charged spheres with random radii and not just the interaction between two point charges as it is in Coulomb's law.

What do you think, is this going to change anything at all? Can it be even used successfully anywhere in the theory and/or application of physics?

Or is it just another theoretical bullshit without any further application?
