(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Determine the dipole moment for the following charge distributions: 1.5uC each at (0,3), (0,5), where the coordinates are in cm.

2. Relevant equations

p=qd

3. The attempt at a solution

Since the coordinates are (0,3) and (0,5) d is 2cm or 0.02m and q is 1.5uC or 1.5E-6C. Which then leads top=(1.5E-6C)(0.02m)=3E-8Cm.

My only problem is that this seems way to easy. Am I missing something obvious?
