A dipole consists of two charges, of +2.50 mC and −2.50 mC, separated by a distance of
2.5&times;10−9 m. This dipole is placed in an electric field of strength E=5500 N/C. The dipole is
oriented as shown, with the dipole moment making a 60◦ angle with the field.
+1.25 mC

60◦
E=5500 N/C
−
−1.25 mC
Question 3: What is the magnitude of the instantaneous torque acting on the dipole? Is the torque
clockwise or counter-clockwise?
Question 4: The dipole is then rotated 180◦ so that the dipole moment now makes a 240◦ (or −60◦ )
angle with the electric field. What was the change in the potential energy of the dipole?
