What is the magnitude of the electric field at point ? Throughout this part, express your answers in terms of the constant , defined by . Hint B.1 How to approach the problem Hint not displayed Part B.2 Find the field due to an infinitesimal segment Part not displayed Hint B.3 A necessary integral Hint not displayed Express your answer in terms of , , , and . ANSWER: = Torque on a Dipole in a Uniform Field Consider an electric dipole whose dipole moment (a vector pointing from the negitive charge to the positive charge) is oriented at angle with respect to the y axis. There is an external electric field of magnitude (independent of the field produced by the dipole) pointing in the positive y direction. The positive and negative ends of the dipole have charges and , respectively, and the two charges are a distance apart. The dipole has a moment of inertia about its center of mass. It will help you to imagine that the dipole is free to rotate about a pivot through its center.
