1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Two short dipoles each of dipole moment p are placed art origin. The dipole moment of one dipole is along x axis while that of other is along y axis. Then what will be the electric field at a point (a, 0)? 2. Relevant equations The direction of electric field due to axial dipole has to be along +ve x axis while electric field due to equatorial dipole should be towards -ve x axis. 3. The attempt at a solution So shouldn't the net electric field at (a, 0) be E=2kp/a3-kp/a3 Well the answer is k50.5p/a3.can someone please explain where I am wrong?
