Two equal charges q of opposite sign separated by a distance 2a constitute an electric dipole of dipole moment p. If P is a point at a distance r from the centre of the dipole and the line joining the centre of the dipole to this point makes an angle θ with the axis of the dipole, then the potential at P is given by (r >> 2a) (Where p = 2qa

(1) $V=\frac{p\mathrm{cos}\theta }{4\pi {\epsilon }_{0}{r}^{2}}$

(2) $V=\frac{p\mathrm{cos}\theta }{4\pi {\epsilon }_{0}r}$

(3) $V=\frac{p\mathrm{sin}\theta }{4\pi {\epsilon }_{0}r}$

A charge $$+q$$ is fixed at each of the points $x={x}_{0},$ $x=3{x}_{0},$ $x=5{x}_{0}$ ..... infinite, on the $$x$$-axis, and a charge $$-q$$ is fixed at each of the points $x=2{x}_{0},$ $x=4{x}_{0},x=6{x}_{0}$,..... infinite. Here $$x_0$$ is a positive constant. Take the electric potential at a point due to a charge $$Q$$ at a distance $$r$$ from it to be $$\frac{Q}{4\pi \varepsilon_0 r}$$. Then, the potential at the origin due to the above system of charges is:
1. $$0$$
2. $$\frac{q}{8 \pi \varepsilon_{0} x_{0} \mathrm{ln} 2}$$
3. $$\infty$$
4. $$\frac{q \mathrm{ln} 2}{4 \pi \varepsilon_{0} x_{0}}$$

Point charge q moves from point P to point S along the path PQRS (figure shown) in a uniform electric field E pointing co-parallel to the positive direction of the x-axis. The coordinates of the points P, Q, R, and S are $\left(a,\text{\hspace{0.17em}}b,\text{\hspace{0.17em}}0\right),\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\left(2a,\text{\hspace{0.17em}}0,\text{\hspace{0.17em}}0\right),\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\left(a,\text{\hspace{0.17em}}-b,\text{\hspace{0.17em}}0\right)$ and (0, 0, 0) respectively. The work done by the field in the above process is given by the expression

(1) qEa

(2) – qEa

(3) $qEa\sqrt{2}$

(4) $qE\sqrt{\left[{\left(2a\right)}^{2}+{b}^{2}\right]}$
