## When a dipole moment of P is placed in uniform electric field E then the torque acting on the dipole is?

When a dipole is placed in a uniform electric field it experiences a torque which aligns to the direction of the electric field with zero net force. The torque acting on the dipole is given as the cross product of dipole moment and the electric field.

## When an electric dipole P is kept in a uniform electric field E then for what value of angle be tween P and E will the torque be maximum?

whoch means The maximum value is 1 and the min value is -1… Thus Torque is Maximum only if the angle between the P and E is Maximum i.e, Sin@ has to be Maximum…and Sin@ is maximum only if @ = 90 degree… So Torque is maximum on Dipole if angle between P amd E is 90 degree….

## What is the torque acting on an electric dipole when placed in an electric field?

Hence, the torque acting on the dipole is 0.

## When an electric dipole P is placed in a uniform?

An electric dipole of moment →p is placed in a uniform electric field →E. Then. (i) the torque on the dipole is p×E. (ii) the potential energy of the system is →p.

## When the dipole moment of a dipole in a uniform electric field?

When the dipole moment of a dipole in a uniform electric field rotates to became more nearly aligned with the field.

## When an electric dipole P is?

Electric potential energy of an Electric dipole in dipole from zero energy position to the desired position (The zero enrgy position to be one when the dipole When an electric dipole of dipole moment p is on it such that P= P× E … W is the work done in turning the dipole from 0otoθ then, W=∫0WdW.

## When an electric dipole is placed in a uniform electric field then what angle between P and E the value of torque will be maximum?

Ans: Given that an electric dipole is placed in a uniform electric field. Our aim is to calculate the maximum torque. Therefore, the value torque will be maximum when the angle between the electric field and the dipole moment is 90⁰. Q1.

## When an electric dipole is kept in a uniform electric field then for what value?

Hence, the electric force on a dipole when it is placed in a uniform electric field is always zero.

## What is torque due to an electric dipole derive relationship for the same?

Derivation of Torque on an Electric Dipole

And the direction of the dipole moment is from the positive to the negative charge; it can be seen from the above equation that the torque is the cross product of the dipole moment and electric field.

## When the torque on an electric dipole in an electric field is maximum?

Torque is maximum when dipole is held perpendicular to the field.

## Does an electric dipole always experience a torque in electric field when is the torque on the electric dipole maximum and minimum?

Answer: If the dipole moment vector is not parallel to the direction of electric field then both the charges comprising the dipole experience a force of equal magnitude but in the opposite direction. Thus it experiences only torque.

## When an electric dipole P is placed in a non uniform?

If an electric dipole is placed in a nonuniform electric field, then the positive and the negative charges of the dipole will experience a net force. And as one end of the dipole is experiencing a force in one direction and the other end in the opposite direction, so the dipole will have a net torque also.

## When an electric dipole is held at an angle in a uniform electric field the net force F and torque?

Answer: the forces experienced by the 2 charges constituting the electric dipole when placed in an uniform external electric field are equal and opposite in nature, the net force on the dipole is zero. No torque act on the dipole when the moment of electric dipole is parallel to the electric field.

## What is the angle between the electric dipole moment and the electric field?

Therefore, the angle between dipole moment and electric field is 180°.
