In the figure below P 1 is on the perpendic- ular bisector of the dipole, and P 2 is along the axis of the dipole in the direction of the dipole vector ˆ p . P 1 and P 2 are both a distance 100 m from the center of the dipole. The magnitude of each of the charges is 4 . 8 μ C . + − 1 . 6 m vectorp P 2 ( − 100 m , 0) P 1 (0 , 100 m) What is the magnitude of the electric field at P 1 ? Hint: The direction of the dipole vector ˆ p is from the negative charge to the positive charge. Correct answer: 0 . 0690244 N / C. Explanation: Let : r = 100 m , d = 1 . 6 m , and q = 4 . 8 μ C = 4 . 8 × 10 − 6 C . + − vectorp P 2 P 1 E + E − E + E − The electric field E 1 is E 1 = 2 1 4 π ǫ q r 2 + parenleftbigg d 2 parenrightbigg 2 sin θ Since sin θ = d 2 bracketleftBigg r 2 + parenleftbigg d 2 parenrightbigg 2 bracketrightBigg 1 / 2 , E 1 = 1 4 π ǫ q d bracketleftBigg r 2 + parenleftbigg d 2 parenrightbigg 2 bracketrightBigg 3 / 2 ≈ 1 4 π ǫ q d r 3 , for r ≫ d , so vector E 1 ≈ − 1 4 π ǫ q d r 3 ˆ p ≈ − 1 4 π ǫ (4 . 8 × 10 − 6 C)(1 . 6 m) (100 m) 3 ˆ p ≈ − . 0690244 N / C ˆ p | E 1 | ≈ . 0690244 N / C ....
