Select all that are true. 2. 2/2 points Question: MI3 14.6.X.010.alt02 If the charge of the point charge in the figure were -5 Q (instead of + Q ), by what factor would the magnitude of the force on the point charge due to the dipole change? (new force / old force) = 5 5 Would the direction of the force change? Ch14 HW3 F2010 (Homework) Stefan Coreth PY 208, section 002M, Fall 2010 Instructor: Laura I. Clarke Web Assign The due date for this assignment is past. Your work can be viewed below, but no changes can be made. The net electric field due to a dipole is zero, since the contribution of the negative charge cancels out the contribution of the positive charge. A dipole consists of two particles whose charges are equal in magnitude but opposite in sign. The electric field at any location in space, due to a dipole, is the vector sum of the electric field due to the positive charge and the electric field due to the negative charge. At a distance
