    It depends on whether A and B are both of the same charge - both positive or both negative - or whether A and B are oppositely charged. If the charges are the same, they repel each other. The stronger the charges are, the more strongly they repel each other. But if the charges are opposite, they attract. The stronger the charges, the more strongly they attract.
