how to derive an expression for electric potential due to a dipole at any point?
Asked by | 19th Apr, 2008, 01:02: PM
The derivation is given in your text book. Find the potential due to the two charges and add them up. since potential is a scalar quantity you only need to consider the sign and not the direction while adding them.
Besides that keep in mind that we wish to get an expression for potential that is in terms of perpendicular distance and distance between the charges. So make appropriate substitutions for this.
