    Need help on E&M problem

    Hi. I'm not sure how to find the charge on Q. I thought dipole moments were only between 1 positive and 1 negative charge of equal magnitude. Also, why is my teacher asking for the number of electrons in Q? If it's water molecule, then aren't there 1 electron in each hydrogen atom?

    Dipole magnet as a cathode

    Hey physics professionals. This is a somewhat odd request for info but I thought I'd run it up the flagpole here, see who salutes; I'm aware a dipole magnet can't be a cathode, what I can't find is any specific information as to why. The kicker is I'm going to attempt to explain this to an...

    Problems understanding video clip on electric dipole

    FLzJ2_DfNX0 In this video on electromagnetism from about 18:20 the lecturer derives the potential on a dipole. In deriving an approximation for large distances from dipole he makes a step (at about 20:50) I can't fathom. It looks similar to a MacClurin series but I'm not seeing how he got...

    patch and dipole antenna

    Hi Ok I have a contradiction in my mind: Patch antenna is called a leaky wave resonant cavity because of the magnetic slots which radiates. We all agree on the fact that they are standing waves with clearly identified max and min as a characteristic of a specific mode inside this cavity...

    Average Effective Dipole moment

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data (Bold x is the unit vector) A.Water relative permitivity is about 81. If the electric field E=1.0 x[V/m] is inside the water, what is the vector P(dipole polarization per unit volume)? B.Assume that the density of water is 1000...

    electric dipole

    Consider the electric dipole shown in Figure P23.22. Show that the electric field at a distant point on the +x axis is Ex ≈ 4ke qa/x3. I tried to get a picture but that didn't work out but it basically shows a positive and a negative charge on the x-axis with a distance of 2a between them...

    Electric dipole

    An electric dipole has positive charge of 4,8x10^{-19}C to 6,4x10^{-10}m a negative charge of the same intensity. What is the electric potential at a point distant 9,2x10^{-10}m of each charge ?
