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.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
