Dipole moment is the measure of strength of electric dipole and is equal to product of either charge and distance between two charges.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

P=ql

but as we know when charges are close the force b/w them is strong n when they are far away force decrease.

But in above equation strength increases with increase in distance as p is directly proportional to l.

Where have i got it wrong?
