# Is there any electrostatic waves for electrostatic force like the gravitational waves for gravity?

If sun suddenly disappears then it will take 8 minutes for earth to move out of its orbit due to the presence of gravitational waves.

What happens if proton in an atom suddenly disappears, will the electron too takes time to move out of its orbital or will it take place instantaneously?

It will take some time until the electron "feels" that the proton disappeared. There is no force which acts instantaneously because the vacuum speed of light $c$ sets a limit for the speed with which information can be transported. This means that information cannot travel faster than $c$. In particular, the information that the proton has disappeared will not reach the electron instantaneously.
