The factor F»1.23 has originally been found in the redshift
of quasars. Recently, it has been found in very different physical phenomena: the
lifetime of muonium, the masses of elementary particles (leptons, quarks,...), the
correlation of atomic weight (A) and atomic number (Z) and the correlation of the sum of
masses of all orbiting bodies with the mass of the central body in gravitational systems.
In this work, we describe further systems where the factor F appears, the distributions
of electric charges. We consider the electrostatic interaction between various pairs of
charge distributions: two uniformly charged spheres, a point charge and a uniformly
charged sphere, two point charges, a point charge and an infinite uniform line charge, two
parallel uniform infinite line charges and two infinite parallel plane charge
distributions.
