Difference between gravitational force and electrostatic force in tabular form

The basic difference between gravitational and electrostatic force is that:Gravitational force is the force by which earth attracts other objects by mass. It is a conservative force. While electrostatic force is the force of an object due to charge. It is also conservative force. These two forces belong to the four fundamental forces of nature.

Now!

We see the difference between gravitational force and electric force in tabular form.
