# Electric field at a point due to electric dipole

Not what you're looking for?

An electric dipole is constructed out of two point charges of equal magnitude q and opposite signs, separated by a distance d, as shown in the attached diagram. Find the electric field at the point P. The two charges are each a distance r from point P.

##### Solution Summary

Solution proceeds with the computation of electric fields at point P due to positive and negative charges.

##### Solution Preview

This is (P point) a equatorial position of the dipole. The electric field due to this system of dipole at point P is calculated as follows:

Electric field at point P due to +ve charge:
E+ = K*q/r^2 (along ...
