Electric potential due to a dipole

Share with:


If a point lies at a distance x from the midpoint of the dipole the electric potential is?


 

Asked Sai Mohan

 

Answer:

 

If the distance x is along the equatorial plane (a plane passing through the midpoint and perpendicular to the axis), the potential will be zero.

 

Please clarify what did you mean.
