Problem 1 (25 Points)
Circle your choice for the correct answer to the five questions below.
A:
An electric dipole, consisting of two equal and opposite point charges at the ends of a
insulating rod, sits in the electric field of a stationary positive point charge, as shown.
The dipole is free to move.
The dipole will
1.
rotate clockwise and move to the left
2.
rotate counterclockwise and move to the right
3.
rotate clockwise and move to the right
4.
rotate counterclockwise and move to the left
5.
rotate clockwise but otherwise not move
6.
