A sample of HCl gas is placed in an electric field of 2.5 × 104 N C–1. The dipole moment of each HCl molecule is 3.4 × 10–30 Cm. Find the maximum torque that can act on a molecule.
Three charges are arranged on the vertices of n equilateral triangle as shown in figure. Find the dipole moment of the combination.
Two particles, carrying –q and +q and having equal masses m each, are fixed at the ends of a light rod of length a to form a dipole. The rod is clamped at an end and is placed in a uniform electric field E with the axis of the dipole along the electric field. The rod is slightly tilted and then released. Neglecting gravity find the time period of small oscillations.
