    Point charges q1=- 5.00 nC and q2=+ 5.00 nC are separated by distance 3.80 mm, forming an electric dipole.

    A) Find the magnitude of the electric dipole moment in Cm.

    B) The charges are in a uniform electric field whose direction makes an angle 36.5 degrees with the line connecting the charges. What is the magnitude of this field in N/C if the torque exerted on the dipole has magnitude 7.00×10^-9 Nm?
