This post categorized under Vector and posted on September 9th, 2019.

A proton feels a force that will accelerate it in the direction of the electric field where has an electron will have an acceleration vector opposite to the applied electric field. The velocity of This shows the electric field obeys the superposition principle the total electric field at a point due to a collection of charges is just equal to the vector sum of the electric fields at that point due to the individual charges. Thus although two closely graphiced opposite charges are not quite an ideal electric dipole (because their potential at short distances is not that of a dipole) at distances much larger than their separation their dipole moment p appears directly in their potential and field.

- [Instructor] Okay so we know that electrical charges create electric fields in the region around them but people get confused by electric field problems so you got to get good at at least two things here if you wanna proficient at dealing with electrical field. Draw the electric field lines between two points of the same charge between two points of opposite charge. Drawings using lines to represent electric fields around charged objects are very useful in visualizing field strength and direction. Draw the electric field lines between two points of the same charge between two points of opposite charge. Drawings using lines to represent electric fields around charged objects are very useful in visualizing field strength and direction.

Only if the two charges are right on top of each other. In general the field at any point will be the vector sum of the fields from each charge. The field is stronger between the charges. In that region the fields from each charge are in the same direction and so their strengths add. The field of two unlike charges is weak at large distances because the fields of the individual charges are in opposite directions and so their strengths subtract. When an electric dipole is inside a uniform electric field as shown the external field exerts two equal but opposite forces on the dipole causing it to rotate and align itself along the field lines of the external field.
