## Homework Statement

I am given this picture

and I know that |q1|=2nC, |q2|=5nC, d=1mm

I need to first find the total dipole moment of the system. Then I need to find an equation that represents the electric potential due to this net dipole moment for all (everywhere)

## Homework Equations

p=qd

## The Attempt at a Solution

I saw a formula which was p=qd (vectors)

so I thought I would separate it into two different dipole moments, one for q1 and one for q2, and then add them together. For p1 I got 2x10^-12 in the y direction, and for p2 I got 5x10^-12 in the x direction. Would this be correct?

Also, would I be using this formula for the potential?

V = kpcosθ/r^2
