Derive an expression for electric potential at any point due to an electric dipole.

Expert Answer:

Dear student
 
 

The potential at point P is the algebraic sum of the potentials due to -q and +q charges. Hence

 

 

Potential at point P due to the dipole along the equatorial line will be zero as P is equidistant from the two charges.

 
We hope this clarifies your doubt.
