NEET Physics Electric Charges and Fields Questions Solved


An electric dipole of moment p is placed in an electric field of intensity E. The dipole acquires a position such that the axis of the dipole makes an angle θ with the direction of the field. Assuming that the potential energy of the dipole to be zero when θ=90°,the torque and the potential energy of the dipole will respectively be

(a)pE sinθ,-pE cosθ

(b)pE sinθ,-2pE cosθ

(c)pE sinθ,2pE cosθ

(d)pE cosθ,-pE sinθ
