An electric dipole is formed by two particles fixed at the end of a light rod of length L. Mass m and 2m with charge q and - q. The system is placed in such a way that the dipole axis is parallel to a uniform electric field. If the dipole is slightly rotated about its center then show that for small angular displacement it's an shm. And find time period

Expert Answer:

Dipole moment p is given by p = q.
If this dipole is placed in electric field, it experiences a torque τ = p x E
