In NCERT question no 1.9 page no 46 the formula used their for finding dipole moment is p=qxd(actually the formula is p=qx2d).Why is this used?

Magnitude of dipole moment is equal to the product of magnitude of either charge and the distance between them.
According to the formula, dipole moment is given by:
where 2a is the seperation between the charges.
In the question the seperation is given and it is actually the seperation 2a between the charge.
The formula used is the same P = q×2a
The seperation between the charge will be 2a
And hence P=q×2a

- Define an electric dipole.
- Draw the pattern for electric field due to a dipole at any point.
- What do you understand by an ideal electric dipole?
- What do you mean by dipole moment?
- What is the direction of dipole moment?
- How the electric field due to an electric dipole is different from that of a point charge?
- What will be the net resultant force when the electric dipole moment is parallel to non uniform electric field ?
- Discuss the case when dipole moment is aligned anti parallel to the external increasing field.
