Dipole Motion in a Uniform Field
Description: A dipole is released from rest and allowed to rotate in an electric field. Find the angular velocity when the dipole is aligned with the field (using conservation of energy). Then find the period of small oscillations about the minimum of potential energy. Consider an electric dipole located in a region with an electric field of magnitude dipole have charges and , respectively, and the two charges are a distance , and it is allowed to rotate freely. The dipole is released from angle pointing in the positive y direction. The positive and negative ends of the apart. The dipole has moment of inertia about its center of mass.
Part A What is Hint A.1 , the magnitude of the dipole's angular velocity when it is pointing along the y axis? How to approach the problem
Because there is no dissipation (friction, air resistance, etc.), you can solve this problem using conservation of energy. When the dipole is released from rest, it has potential energy but no kinetic energy. When the dipole is aligned with the y axis, it is rotating, and therefore has both kinetic and potential energy. The sum of potential and kinetic energy will remain constant. Hint A.2 Find the potential energy due to its interaction with the electric field as a function of the angle . that the dipole's positive end makes with the positive y axis. Define the potential energy to be zero

Part B If is small, the dipole will exhibit simple harmonic motion after it is released. What is the period How to approach the problem . To solve this problem, you need to write the equation of motion for the dipole in the standard form does not represent the of the dipole's oscillations in this case?
Hint B.1
The equation of motion for a simple harmonic oscillator can always be written in the standard form with replaced by the angular variable . This will allow you to read off the expression for
, which has a simple relationship to the period of oscillation. (Note: Here, the variable . Recall that
angular velocity of the dipole; rather, it denotes the frequency of the dipole's oscillation.) Start with the angular analogue of Newton's second law: second derivative of , just as linear acceleration is equal to the second derivative of position. Hint B.2 Compute the torque that the electric field exerts about the center of mass of the dipole when the dipole is oriented at an angle
, the angular acceleration, is equal to the
What is the magnitude of the torque Hint B.2.1

Formula for torque on a dipole in an electric field is given by . Alternatively, the torque can be related to the potential energy by .

Hint B.3 Because
The small-angle approximation for torque, and take the torque to be .
is small, you can apply the small-angle approximation to the expression
Up to this point we have been interested only in the magnitude of the torque. Now let's think about the direction. After all, torque is a vector quantity. For a system to oscillate, the torque must be a restoring torque; that is, the torque and the (small) angular displacement must be in opposite directions. (Recall that small angular displacements can be treated as vectors, since they obey vector addition, while large angles do not.) If you did the vector algebra carefully, you would find that the correct vector equation is . For future purposes we will write this as , keeping in mind that now represents the component of in the direction, rather than the magnitude of .
Hint B.4
Find the oscillation frequency
Putting together what you have so far yields .

Because the cylinder and rod are cylindrically symmetric, the magnitude of the electric field cannot vary as a function of angle around the rod, nor as a function of longitudinal position along the rod (typically represented by the spatial variables and ).

Recall that a problem with two unknowns requires two equations to be solved. Here, the law of conservation of mechanical energy provides one of the equations. To find the second equation, think what other physical quantity besides energy is conserved, and translate that into a mathematical expression. But before you do that, it's helpful if you complete a before-and-after pictorial representation of the problem. Your drawing might look like this:

Part B Find the speed of the proton Hint B.1 by the time the distance between the particles doubles.
How to interpret potential energy
To apply the law of conservation of mechanical energy, you need to find an expression for the initial and final kinetic and potential energies of the system. When the system is made of particles that do not create the electric potential but simply move in space where an electric potential already exists, the electric potential energy of each particle can be expressed in terms of the potential as , as outlined in the strategy. When, instead, the system is made of particles that are the source of the electric potential and move in space purely because of the electric interaction with one another, the electric potential energy of the system must be calculated directly from the definition of work done by the electric force.
