question about dirction of electric dipole

Asked by kunalxi 21st March 2010, 11:53 PM
Answered by Expert


Electric dipole is the product of charge and separation distance/displacement between them, the direction of electric dipole comes from the separation vector, displacement if you like, which is from negative to positive charge. It has nothing to do with electric field direction. And assigning it in this way gives correctly the direction of torque on a electric dipole in an electric field.
